Re: Faulty commands have messed up Ubuntu
You don't need to do a complete reinstalling to get rid of this faulty wifi startup.
I just red the guide you followed and found this:
Now I have included a wifi.sh file in the zipped folder near the top. You need to put this file in “/etc/init.d/” then type these commands in a terminal:
sudo cd /etc/init.d/
sudo update-rc.d wifi.sh defaults
sudo chmod +x wifi.sh
This ensures the wifi starts on bootup!
So , to unable the startup just boot into recovery mode and in console typ:
Then reboot like normal.
sudo rm /etc/init.d/wifi.sh
I found this, hope this guide will keep your wifi going.
This process is vastly simplified in Hardy. The easiest way to do it is to open the Hardware Drivers program (go to the System menu in the top left corner of the screen, and click Administration, and then Hardware Drivers) and check the Broadcom B43 wireless driver box, and reboot.
A couple of notes about that procedure:
It installs the b43 driver, which is semi-open source. The b43 driver works decently and will cover most peoples' wireless needs, and is easy to setup. However, you can also choose to use ndiswrapper, which will provide you with a slightly faster connection. For information on how to set that up, see http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=766560

When your thread it solved: go to thread tools > Mark this thread as solved
for SIS 771/671 use xcompmgr to have transparent terminals. just load it at startup.
And then they asked: what's a pbkac error?
