No such thing is possible. Do you mean Broadcom 4312?

Documented as Mr. Oldcpu says. It is not easy to find the right WINDOWS
driver data to splice needed BCM firmware data from. If you download a new
WINDOWS driver data then it will be too new, and fwcutter will complain.

I know it is possible to make this work. You will need to find an older
version of the right WINDOWS driver, and use the bcm43xx fwcutter tools on

Good luck!
