    Did you unplug the stick and create a new wireless connection? Check:
    Code:
    dmesg | grep b43
    lsmod
    iwconfig
    rfkill list

    Obviously, some firmware file missing. Install the package "linux-firmware-nonfree" and try again

    Either via Software-Center or via terminal

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-firmware-nonfree

    I am pretty sure that EDIMAX EW7811un has nothing to do with Broadcom 4312. The former is a USB wireless adapter, while the latter is an internal wireless card.
    You can get both working: Edimax, Broadcom.

    I know that

    The Realtek driver can be updated later. I was wondering about the module b43 showing up...

    Ah, ok, thought I'd mention.
    b43 shows up because the OP installed firmware-b43-lpphy-installer, probably without internet access, so there is no firmware.
