A quick apt-cache search 4313 is telling me, you need broadcom-sta-source.

Edit my post because i don't remember the order!
Remove anything install for the bcm4313 and we start with:
1) dpkg -l | grep firmware-brcm80211
2) dpkg -l | grep broadcom-sta-source
3) m-a a-i broadcom-sta-source
4) ifconfig
5)rmmod ssb && rmmod brcm80211 && echo -e "blacklist ssb\nblacklist brcm80211" > /etc/modprobe.d/broadcom.conf
6)rmmod b43 && rmmod ssb && rmmod brcm80211 && echo -e "blacklist ssb\nblacklist brcm80211" > /etc/modprobe.d/broadcom.conf
7)reboot the system.

well, slaughterer had brcm80211 installed and it didnt work.
so, we removed it, installed broadcom-sta-source (2)
built the module (3), checked if wlan was there (4)
(5) was missing something, so ignore it,
with (6) we unload modules we need to blacklist and blacklist them.

I just loaded aptosid on my Dell Mini 9 which uses Broadcom wireless and this worked for it as well.

Did everyone get "wlan0" for the id for the wireless? I am getting "eth1" for wireless....just curious

Same here. I also got eth1 instead of wlan0

Mine also eth0 ethernet eth1 the wireless. So do not panic!

Post subject: RE: Broadcom bcm4313
OK, I was just curious since with the other laptops i support it all came up as wlan0. Thanks

New kernel, so you have to rebuild the kernel module:
      Code:
m-a a-i broadcom-sta-source


But do yourself a favor and automate this for the next time:
      Code:
apt-get install dmakms
echo broadcom-sta-source >> /etc/default/dmakms


This "trick" is used for nonfree nvidia-graphiccards drivers and virtualbox-drivers, so it should work for you as well.

Give the latest brcm80211 a chance again - it works fine for bcm4313 on several netbooks I set up recently. Just make sure to remove broadcom-sta entirely before, and revert all the blacklisting you did. Then dist-upgrade (new kernel, reboot) and use Ceni to set it up. Your wireless device should be wlan0 now.
Greetings,
Chris
