Ubuntu – My BCM 4311 Wireless is not working. How to fix this?


Hi I've spent hours trying all the suggestions listed on Forums on this problem all over the Internet and I still can't get my wireless working. It's very discouraging because it might force me to go back to Windows which I hate. Can someone help?

Perhaps I can give you some information to help identify what the issue is? b43 isn't coming up in my list of drivers…just Broadcom STA which doesn't work.

I think I've removed all the blacklisted stuff.

I had the same problem here! This is the fix that I used to great success:

Ubuntu 11.10 getting wireless BCM4311 working

The basics are this:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-installer
sudo apt-get remove bcmwl-kernel-source
sudo reboot
