    Hi davenline19, Welcome to the forums !

    Please connect your laptop via cable, then try this solution : http://askubuntu.com/a/215923

    If it works but fails to load again on next reboot, do this -
    Code:
    echo "wl" | sudo tee -a /etc/modules
    Post back the result. Thanks.

    Re: Broadcom BCM43142

    had similar problem with BCM43228 on Ubuntu 13.04 (Raring Ringtail)

    in the liveCD installation it worked to simply select the 'software and updates > additional drivers, > Using Broadcom 802.11... STA wireless... driver...'

    but after the install this did not work. (also my LAN did not work, so had no network at all),

    the way I solved it was by using dpkg and the CDROM source files like this:

    cd /media/myusername/Ubuntu 13.04 amd64/pool/main/d/dkms/
    dpkg -i dkms_2.2.0.3-1.1ubuntu2_all.deb
    cd
    cd /media/myusername/Ubuntu 13.04 amd64/pool/restricted/b/bcmwl
    dpkg -i bcmwl-kernel-source_6.20.155.1+bdcom-0ubuntu6_amd64.deb

    that fixed this for me, next is to fix the LAN.
    (This is on a HP envy H8 1435l)
