    We need more details about your wireless card. Please open a terminal and run and post:
    Code:
    lspci -nn | grep 0280

    With the ethernet connected, please do:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic bcmwl-kernel-source
    sudo modprobe wl
    Detach the ethernet and let us hear your report.

    Re: Wireless problem with Broadcom

    at the first command the answer is this
    E: Impossibile trovare il pacchetto bcmwl-kernel-sourc

    means impossible to find the package

    at the second

    FATAL: Module wl not found.

    Look like that somthing is missing
