    Hi, please do:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge bcmwl-kernel-source broadcom-sta-common broadcom-sta-source
    Then:
    Download the b43 zip file to a flash drive then drag and drop the file to your ubuntu desktop. Right-click it and select Extract Here. Open a terminal and do:
    Code:
    sudo mkdir /lib/firmware/b43
    sudo cp Desktop/b43/* /lib/firmware/b43
    sudo rmmod -f b43
    sudo rmmod -f ssb
    sudo modprobe b43
    Thanks

    Re: Aspire 3690 - WI Network problem.

    Hi, did you copy and paste each command one line at a time for accuracy?
    wl driver is there so the purge command should have found it.
    Thanks

    Re: Aspire 3690 - WI Network problem.

    In that icon do you see a check by enable networking and one by wireless?
    Do you see the network you want to connect too?
    Thanks
