    In order to know the best solution, please run and post:
    Code:
    lsb_release -a
    Do you have a temporary ethernet connection available? Thanks.

    No LSB modules are available.

    Please run:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe -r b43
    sudo apt-get install linux-firmware-nonfree
    sudo modprobe b43
    Is it working now?
