    Since going from 11.10 to 12.04 I have been unable to get wireless working.
    Did you upgrade or do a clean install?

    Thanks a lot!
    Just want to say that, having lost Wireless when updating to 12.04 today, this method worked for me. Much simpler than some of the other methods I had tried earlier on too!

    Found a Archlinux wiki guide on Broadcom wireless courtesy of Blackwolf of Ultimate Edition Oz forums, hope this guide can help you guys somehow.

    This worked for me as well. Broadcom 4312. However, I had to install the firmware-b43-lpinstaller instead, as I am running it on a lower powered netbook.

    Also had to run updates twice, as it needed the latest kernel.

    Did a full reinstall of Precise on my Compaq Presario M2000, which has a Broadcom 4318 wireless device, and used the alternate distro as the regular distro was hanging on me.

    Referring to post #514 in this thread, which I posted last fall, I performed steps 0, 3, and 4. And it is working again.

    Re: Solution to Broadcom 43xx Card Problem (12.04 - Precise Pangolin)

    Ok, i have tried just about every guide i can find to getting wireless working on my DELL 1525...but im about ready to give up and by a USB dongle.

    I have tried reinstalling ubuntu, b43 drivers, sta drivers...and any thing else i have read.

    I am not a TOTAL linux noob, but i do struggle with even some of the simplest tasks as it has been about 5 years since my first (positive) experience with linux

    I am willing to run any command and post outputs, but i need the commands pretty much spoon fed. i can google stuff like how to untar and other thigns like that if necessary, but the simpler the better.

    lspci returns: Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY (rev 01)

    Any help would be great. Thank you.

    Re: Solution to Broadcom 43xx Card Problem (12.04 - Precise Pangolin)

    Hello folks,

    after many trial and error with wl and b43 drivers, randomly loosing connection on BCM4312 I found wireless drivers are conflicting with Intel's ethernet driver e1000e. Simple rmmod e1000e resolves the connection issue. What is intriguing I am unable to successfully blacklist this module co I have to manually remove it after boot. Does anyone have suggestions how to make permanent fix of forward this bug upstream to dev teams ?

    mine just went dead on me after the latest update today. no matter what package i install, my wireless driver refuses to activate. if i try to use the additional drivers program, it tells me that it failed to install and to check "/var/log/jockey.log", which reads as this

    Code:
    dpkg: error processing firmware-b43-lpphy-installer (--configure):
     subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 2

    Have you tried manually adding the line "rmmod e1000e" inside /etc/modules?

    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/modules
    and in the end of the file add the line
    rmmod e1000e
    Save, exit and reboot to test.
