    Broadcom BCM43228

    So, I am sitting on a brand-new installation of 12.10 64bit, alongside windows 7 on a brand-new computer. Right after installation, the wireless worked, however, after installing the 97 updates that were needed and rebooting, there is no wifi to be had (ethernet works fine though, that's how I'm posting this). I have looked in software sources, and it claims that the proprietary driver is being employed.

    Running lshw -C network:

    From another thread (here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1816292), I saw that the below information might be useful?

    Code:
    lspci -nn | grep 0280 
    03:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM43228 802.11a/b/g/n [14e4:4359]
    Of course I also tried the fix from that thread, but that gave me nothing - at the end I just got the message that "this card has not actually been tested, please install the driver manually", or something along those lines.

    Any suggestions?

    EDIT: I apologise for the uninformative title, don't know what happened there.

    Hi ,
    open a terminal and try this (you need an active Internet connection , eg: through Ethernet cable)
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall bcmwl-kernel-source
    Then unplug Ethernet cable and reboot.

    Working ?

    Thanks

    thanks

    Solved mine too. Thanks, Nikky.

    Oops!
    The problem came back again after stopping wireless connection and using wired connection for printing some paper works.

    However, I followed http://pkgs.org/ubuntu-12.04/ubuntu-....deb/download/
    and felt a bit better. Not sure if the problem coming back.

    The solution provided for NikTh worked for me too, but also happened the same situation that wijit reported. I tried the installation of the broadcom-sta-common package. Then I had no problem.

    Thanks!
