new thread started for bluetooth....
i rebooted and wifi was off again, but running the two lines of code you first instructed bring it back so not to bad
This means, you just need to force the driver being loaded at boot-up:
Code:echo b43 | sudo tee -a /etc/modules
That worked beautifully! Wifi is on even when I reboot now thanks all for your help! I'll mark this solved now
wifi is fine just after this step .. many thanks
