This message suggest that you have supported MAC chip (BCM4312) by the
driver but PHY chip is not supported. Find out what PHY chip you have and
look for driver for it. Usually PHY driver is buit in MAC driver because
MAC chip drives and uses exclusively PHY chip. For wireless the phy chip
should be transciever chip. This message may tell you also that driver has
built in phy driver but not for hardware you have. Try this driver's repo
for the most new one code.
have a nice day,
