    Re: Problems with wireless

    here is the first one
    Code:
    Linux austin-HP-G62-Notebook-PC 3.5.0-26-generic #40-Ubuntu SMP Tue Feb 26 19:57:24 UTC 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
    and the second

    Code:
    /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-bcm43.conf:blacklist brcm80211
    /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-bcm43.conf:blacklist brcmfmac
    /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-bcm43.conf:blacklist brcmsmac
    /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-bcm43.conf:blacklist bcma
    /etc/modprobe.d/broadcom-sta-common.conf:blacklist brcm80211
    /etc/modprobe.d/broadcom-sta-common.conf:blacklist brcmsmac
    /etc/modprobe.d/broadcom-sta-dkms.conf:blacklist brcm80211
    /etc/modprobe.d/broadcom-sta-dkms.conf:blacklist brcmsmac
    And also, I'd like to appologize if I sounded ungratefull in my last post. It's just that this is annoying, and the last time I had Ubuntu installed on my laptop (which was before my hard drive commited suicide/was murdered), it worked completely fine. So I am just having trouble understanding what could be so different.

    Remove these files:
    Code:
    sudo rm /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-bcm43.conf
    sudo rm /etc/modprobe.d/broadcom-sta-common.conf
    sudo rm /etc/modprobe.d/broadcom-sta-dkms.conf
