I got help getting wifi working on a Toshiba laptop with 10.10. After an update came through and I applied it (I believe it was a linux kernel update or generic headers update) wifi stopped working.

I followed the steps in the post to re-create the driver but this time it doesn't work. So 2 questions:
1. How to re-create the driver after this update?
2. How to prevent this from happening again? So that another update doesn't make the driver not work?

Thanks for any help!

The install process will need one extra step.

make clean
make
sudo make install
Try that and post back if it works.
