Re: Remove Broadcom STA wireless driver after unsuccessful installation
That's one of the messages that appears when the wireless card and driver meet and start determining what channels it can use. I didn't think cfg80211 was a dependency of wl. Is there another wireless device present? A USB perhaps? If so, remove it for now.
[ 121.959337] cfg80211: (5735000 kHz - 5835000 kHz @ 40000 kHz), (300 mBi, 2000 mBm)
I suggest trying to get wl to absolutely not try to load and freeze up by renaming it:...will tell you the specific module being loaded; for example:
Your location will probably be different, but use the exact location to rename the file:
chili@Think410:~$ modinfo wl
Now go back to the repair packages option in recovery mode and see if you can succeed.
sudo mv /lib/modules/3.5.0-25-generic/updates/dkms/wl.ko /lib/modules/3.5.0-25-generic/updates/dkms/wl.bak
