Package: firmware-brcm80211
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

*** Reporter, please consider answering these questions, where appropriate ***

   * What led up to the situation?

I'm using bookworm as my desktop OS. I have the following wireless card.

02:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Inc. and subsidiaries BCM43225 
802.11b/g/n [14e4:4357] (rev 01)

This card is not working. It displays a message that "Firmware is missing".

   60.592279] brcmsmac bcma0:1: firmware: failed to load brcm/bcm43xx-0.fw (-2)
[   60.593680] firmware_class: See for 
information about missing firmware
[   60.594859] brcmsmac bcma0:1: firmware: failed to load brcm/bcm43xx-0.fw (-2)

i already have firmware-linux-free, firmware-iwlwifi, firmware-misc-nonfree 
installed on my system. None of these have the file brcm/bcm43xx-0.fw

I also tried installing "firmware-b43-installer". This also didn't install the 
required files. So, the wifi card is unusable on bookwork.

I found that the package firmware-brcm80211 has these files, but it is not 
present in bookworm repo
