I installed Ubuntu on my late 2012 Mac mini, but now I can't find/install the correct WiFi/Ethernet driver. Does anyone have a link to the correct driver and how to install it? Thanks!

The network devices on this machine are:

  • Broadcom Corporation Device [14e4:1686] (rev 01) with manually compiled kernel driver tg3
  • Broadcom Corporation BCM4331 [14e4:4331] (rev 02) with kernel driver bcma-pci-bridge
