Broadcom BCM43142 - Driver support on Kali Linux?

I am attempting to configure a new netbook with Kali Linux. Everything seems to be fine, except wifi isn't working. Apparently the computer has a Broadcom BCM43142 wireless card, which doesn't have built in drivers. Where should I look to find them, and what are my possible workarounds? Should I attempt to use an older Broadcom driver?

From lspci -knn Manually copied, typos are possible

02:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM43142 802.11b/g/n [14e4:4365] (rev 01) DeviceName: Broadcom WLAN Broadcom Nami 43142 bgn 1x1 + BT 4 LE PCIe+USB NGFF 1630 Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company BCM43142 802.11b/g/n [103c:804a] 

More searching has led me to find a couple of deb packages, which I'm listing below, still figuring out which is the right one for my version of Kali.

My Kali version is

Linux kali 4.3.0-kali1-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.3.3-5kali4 (2016-01-13) x86_64 GNU/Linux
