How can I get my wifi network interface in proxmox ? (broadcom BCM4352)

HI !

I'm setting up a virtualized pfsense router, and I'd like smartphones to be able to connect to it.

I have an Asus x79 deluxe motherboard with 2 ethernets and 1 wifi card (model BCM4352).

Problem: the interface is not recognized in proxmox, nor is it recognized when I use ip a :

However, it is recognized with lshw -C network :


What I did:

I installed this package because the wl package doesn't support monitor mode:

apt-get install b43-fwcutter firmware-b43-installer

I also noticed that the wifi card (BCM4352) and the interface (enp12s0) share the same physical id and the same bus. Does this mean I can't use ethernet and wifi at the same time?
