    Both wl and brcmsmac are in /etc/modules

    Currently in kernel 3.2.0.34, and the wireless worked straight away at boot.

    Hmm, I did think to try that, which didn't work in kernel 3.2.0-37 either, but I'll try an earlier kernel and report back - shortly.

    Boot into recovery mode or not?

    Also, do I want to modprobe...
