OK, let's try the wl driver .. fire up synaptic package manager, and go to

Settings > Repositories > Other software tab

but a tick in the 2 boxes

Canonical Partners
and
Independent

Click the "Close" button .. and close synaptic.

Open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic build-essential dkms
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source
then
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe -r b43 ssb wl
then
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe wl
Did wireless spring to life ?

I think a later kernel got installed .. try rebooting, then (if wireless doesn't just automatically start working) running:
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe -r b43 ssb wl
then
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe wl

Code: [Select]
