    Question No wifi on Dell Mini after installing Ubuntu 12.10

    Hi, just installed Ubuntu 12.10 on Dell Inspiron Mini 1012. No wifi, so run these at terminal (connected to internet via ethernet):

    07:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY [14e4:4315] (rev 01)

    sudo modprobe wl
    FATAL: Module wl not found

    sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source
    E: Unable to locate package bcmwl-kernel-source

    sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-lpphy-installer
    E: Unable to locate package firmware-b43-lpphy-installer


    Does anyone have an idea what to do in order to get wifi?
    Thanks for responds in advance!

    I upgraded to 12.10 recently from 12.04 and everything worked fine including wifi. Was your install fresh 12.10?
