I have been trying quite often to get Debian's network manager to work so I could connect to the internet as I am new to the specific OS. After installing package after package, I finally decided that I was on a mad goose chase of packages and dependencies for those packages. Does anyone happen to have all the packages I need for Network Manager? I already have the drivers working for my Broadcom adapter.

Just install from the repository normally, I guess?
Install the applet (network-manager-gnome), everything should follow in order.

Repository? I tried getting it from online. I moved it to my flash drive and to my debian OS (as it does not yet have internet). After attempting to install it, I was greeted with a "dependencies needed". By repository, do you mean the entire package or a source in which I am getting it from?

"Repository" is a source of software packages.

What Debian version are you running?
In Squeeze and later you will have to manually configure Network Manager to use it with your network interface.
See here: http://wiki.debian.org/NetworkManager
