    sudo modprobe -r b43
    sudo modprobe b43
    Is it working now?
    Thanks you very much, this worked...Oh I tried it on the 12.04 and it worked. Do I need to this on every boot or its permanent?

    I have the same problem, I ran that code above and got Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wirelesss LAN Controller [14e4:4727] (rev01).

    By the way, how do you copy and paste in Ubuntu? Ctrl C and Ctrl V do not seem to have any effect. Nor do I see a menu bar to select copy or paste in the terminal.

    Right click won't work in Ubuntu on my mousepad. I see no settings to change in Mousepad under System settings that could make it work.

    What sort of device is it? How do you paste then?

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall bcmwl-kernel-source
    After it's done, do:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe wl
    If there is no error or warning, your wireless should be working.
    Thanks!
