    No Wireless BCM4313

    I am unable to get my BCM4313 active. Enable Wireless is grayed out under the network icon. Right now, I am using the directions from this site. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Code:
    lspci | grep 43
    Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller (rev 01)
    Code:
    lshw -C network

    :~$ rfkill list all

    	Soft blocked: yes
    	Hard blocked: no
    1: dell-bluetooth: Bluetooth
    	Soft blocked: no
