    Re: No wireless with latest ubuntu

    Unpacking replacement bcmwl-kernel-source ...
    Setting up bcmwl-kernel-source (5.100.82.38+bdcom-0ubuntu6.1) ...
    Loading new bcmwl-5.100.82.38+bdcom DKMS files...
    Building for 3.0.0-19-generic-pae and 3.2.0-24-generic
    Building for architecture i686
    Module build for the currently running kernel was skipped since the
    kernel source for this kernel does not seem to be installed.
    Building initial module for 3.2.0-24-generic
    Done.
    This looks, to me, like you are attempting to build the module from source code without having the kernel headers or source code on your machine. Am I right?

    Re: No wireless with latest ubuntu

    Well! What a stubborn little module! Please try:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove bcmwl-kernel-source
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic-pae
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic
    sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source
    sudo modprobe wl
    I suspect some of the confusion is that you have kernels for pae and non-pae and headers for some but evidently not both.
    Building for 3.0.0-19-generic-pae and 3.2.0-24-generic
    Once we conquer the present task, you might correct that by removing those you don't really want to use. If you have more than 2 Gb of RAM, I think you'd want all pae. If so, be sure you have and are running the most current pae before you start amputating kernels. If in doubt, STOP and ask.

    You can also safely do:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get autoremove

    Package `linux-headers-3.0.0-19-generic-pae' is not installed
    Weird. As I said before, let's get the wireless working and clean up later. Please do:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r`
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall bcmwl-kernel-source
    sudo modprobe wl
    We hope for a more harmonious result.

    I don't know if your problem was the same as mine, but if it is, Post #25 at this link did the trick for me. I keep this link handy because anytime I install any flavor of Ubuntu I need to do this.
