It is strange that Wireless interface is marked cabled. But I do not 
have ANY experience with Broadcom radios. All I use are Atheros radios.

Try creating "Connect to Hidden Network" connection (or whatever the 
actual text is) in NetworkManager GUI. You must see be able to set ESSID 
at other configs. If you do not have it, then something is wrong.

You can also try using the kmod-wl package that I compiled per elrepo 

Maybe this makes a difference, but notice that I never tested it.

If I fail to help you, you will always be able to report a bug:


,so your problems can be investigated.
