Sounds like missing firmware.  Do you have the non-free and contrib
sections of the Debian archive enabled in /etc/apt/sources.list?
Do you have Debian package firmware-b43-installer installed?

After installing it, and rebooting, issue

and search for the string "firmware" to see if the firmware loaded
properly this time, and to see if there are any other missing firmware
files for other hardware that requires firmware.

By the way, please choose a more appropriate subject line in your posts
