I have BCM4312 card and use it for several years with Network Manager not
having a singly issue. Though all this experience is in GNOME. Can it be
different in KDE? I would be surprised.

In my /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf I have these 3 lines added:
blacklist bcma
blacklist brcmsmac
blacklist brcmutil

I had to add this in 11.10 already as that was then ubuntu for whatever
reason did not automagically remove the free driver when you install the
broadcom driver
