    how do you gain so much knowledge
    I read the forums; I copy methods that work from others here on the forum and I keep good notes. I have a 'Forum' folder on my desktop that's just a tiny, slim little 1.8 GB. The pci.id or the usb.id and Google tell everything.

    Mostly, it's years and years of experience.

    Thanks for your kind words.

    This worked for me as well, though I wanted to know what to do with the b43 file on the desktop when I am done. Can I chuck it?
    Thanks. I'm pretty rusty and a general noob, so thanks.

    You can. However, if you ever need to reinstall, you might be glad if you transferred it to a CD and filed it away.

    This hasn't worked for me

    Code:
    lspci -nn |grep 0280
    0b:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY [14e4:4315] (rev 01)
    I do have a STA driver in the additional drivers bit but this is not activated. I tried activating it as well to see if that made any difference but it didn't.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    There is some question as to the best way to get your specific device going. Here is my best shot:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove --purge bcmwl-kernel-source
    sudo apt-get install linux-firmware-nonfree
    Reboot and tell us if it's working.

    When i attempted this after the last line of sudo modprobe b43 the terminal lists a bunch of stuff and i have to basically power the laptop down to be able to use it again. Am i missing something?

    Do you have the same device?

    We won't know what the problem is until we see the 'bunch of stuff.' Can you please reboot and show us:
    Code:
    dmesg | grep b43
