    can't connect wireless after update to 3.5.0-26-generic

    leptop- toshiba sattelite l650
    network cards are atheros(wired) and brodcome(wireless)
    if I return to 3.5.0-17 all work fine... but it means I can't update and upgrade without wireless going haywire

    now it gives me this- iwconfig
    eth0 no wireless extensions
    lo no wireless extensions

    anyone encountered it?
    tried to find help via google and all kinda places... some thing helped buy then everything got stuck and ubuntu got internal error.

    help? XD

    TY

    Let's find out exactly which brodcome you have. Please open a terminal and run and post:
    Code:
    lspci -nn -d 14E4:

    Re: can't connect wireless after update to 3.5.0-26-generic

    The correct driver for your device 14e4:4727 is the Broadcom STA driver provided by bcmwl-kernel-source. Can you load the module?
    Code:
    sudo modprobe wl
    If there is an error, re-install the driver with a temporary ethernet connection:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall bcmwl-kernel-source
    sudo modprobe wl
    Now is it working?
