I'm running hrev35770 gcc2hybrid raw, booting off a USB stick on a Dell Mini10 (or the Inspiron 1010 as its called here in UK). According to Colin's blog, the recent Haiku nightlies should have support for the bcm4312, at least for connecting to unencrypted wifi networks; but my wlan chipset isn't listed under the Haiku network tool nor by ifconfig.

First thx for the report. The bad news: It's no bug. The driver simply doesn't support the device in the Dell Mini 10. Syslog says it has deviceid 4315, which isn't listed as a supported device.
It would require a newer version called bwn (we are using bwi), which is still in development by the FreeBSD people.
