Gone through many forums but nothing seems to have worked in my case.
I have Ubuntu 12.04 installed on my Dell Inspiron 1464 Laptop with Wubi. The other operating system being Windows 7.
The wireless on Windows is working perfectly fine but not on Ubuntu. Initially, in Ubuntu 12.04 the wireless used to work perfectly fine but not lately. (Note. I keep on updating my Ubuntu regularly. So, might be the case.)
The Exact Problem is:
Everytime I restart my laptop, the Additional Driver for "Broadcom STA wireless driver" says "This driver is activated but not currently in use". So, in order to make it work, I have to remove and re-activate the driver to make it work every time I boot.
I have blacklisted bcma and brcm80211 as mentioned in this
thread... I have followed all the steps as mentioned in the thread but it hasn't worked in my case.
The Outputs of few Commands which may help the "Super Geeks" solve my problem.
