    Re: Broadcom STA Wireless drivers not working on Acer aspire 5750G, Ubuntu 12.04

    Please help,- recently upgraded daughters Qimo to Ubuntu 12.04- i think. Wireless not working. Wireless required for her to do school work away from my office.

    says i have the broadcom sta wireless driver

    tried uninstalling and resintalling the driver,- found one website that suggested blacklisting something- cant remember what it was i blacklisted- found website here-
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1859668

    came on your thread from finding the pci.id to be 14e4:4311.

    the terminal says

    Broadcom Corporation BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN [14e4:4311] (rev 01)


    tried some commands from this thread,- nothing worked. still no wireless networks found.

    maybe i need to unblacklist something? i have Dell inspiron E1505

    Thanks for your help

    My hero! This is my first time using Linux, and after a week of trying to get my wireless working I found this thread, then found the same 4311 ID, did the above and it worked! Through 2 reboots as well. Thank you!

    You need the Broadcom STA driver. Please hook up the ethernet and do:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source
    Reboot and it should be working.

    If there is no error or warning, your wireless should be working.
    Thank you!

    This worked for me after ubuntu 12.04 updates somehow killed the wireless connection!

    It was not fun to drag my entire system across the house in order to plug into a ethernet cable.

    I'm sure. Hopefully, now it's fixed and you will have smooth sailing!
