Try broadcom-sta-dkms.

As Gamb1t said, you should try broadcom-sta-dkms - but also, you don't need the full kernel sources (nor does bcmwl-kernel-source exist in our repositories) - bcmwl-kernel-source is the ubuntu package for broadcom-sta-dkms... That said, you *should* only need the firmware for Broadcom devices with the latest kernel, and not need the sta driver, which will likely not do what you expect it to, as it's Broadcom's proprietary driver and not mac80211 based.
