I have been looking around for quite a while as far as these n300 adapter and use with bcmwl kernels, however I'm having quite a bit of trouble installing the package.
sudo dpkg --configure bcmwl-kernel-source
return the same error, after freshly apt-get update, and upgrading.
apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source

I was able to get the device working for a short while, utilising either b43 or b43legacy (I've tried both), but since neither natively supported injection/mon0 I tried to patch with the b43 injection patch. Needless to say that hasn't worked (yet) and I'm left with this error and a not working wireless adapter.
lsusb does show it, however.

I'm a bit stuck, and would appreciate some help in getting this solved, if there is a solution
