    Wow, it worked! When I ran the second line I got:

    FATAL: Module wl not found.

    I ran the third line anyway, rebooted and I've got wireless again... thank so much, Chili555!

    Under additional drivers, it says the Broadcom STA driver is not active... I'm going to leave that alone, lol

    sudo modprobe -r wl
    sudo apt-get install linux-firmware-nonfree
    Reboot and let us hear a good report.
    This worked perfectly for my Dell 5150 wireless problem in Lubuntu 12.04. Thanks!
