    Did you try the first command in my second post? Did it complete successfully? -
    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge bcmwl-kernel-source
    The presence of the blacklist file quoted above suggests that it isn't yet purged, at least not the additional files (above one included) that it creates. Please run the apt-get purge command again and post back it's output.

    If it returns messages like it is not installed so nothing to remove/purge, manually delete the above blacklist file -
    Code:
    sudo rm /etc/modprobe.d/broadcom-sta-common.conf
    Then reboot or do -
    Code:
    sudo modprobe -v b43
    Does it activate your wireless? If not, please post the output of -
    Code:
    dmesg | grep b43

    Yes i typed all the commands in your post, here are all of the outputs of the commands you gave me:

    Input:

    Output:
    Code:
    Reading package lists... DoneBuilding dependency tree

    Package bcmwl-kernel-source is not installed, so not removed
    The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
      python-renderpm libart-2.0-2 python-reportlab-accel

    ..which means the script output you attached was run BEFORE purging the driver "wl" ?

    Please follow the "Wireless Script" link in my sig. again, download the alternative one from the link at the bottom of the post and use the "No Internet" method to run it again, and post back the fresh report it generates.

    Also, since you card only supports g-channel it seems, please try setting your router to use g or b/g mode only. If it has N-channel support, it can be a problem.

    Re: Broadcom Diver wont install, please help

    I dont know what you mean by purging the driver "wl" i thought you meant the code:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge bcmwl-kernel-source

    so i ran that code then did the "No Internet" wireless script. I sorry im new at this whole linux thing and dont know alot about it.
    Also i dont how to changed my router to g b/g mode. I am using a Cisoco Linksys router so if you can maybe you can give me the steps or more information to see what my router is that would help too. I ran the wireless Script in "No internet" after i ran the "wl" code i though you meant. If i did it wrong ill try again, i just dont know what you mean my "wl" driver, Thanks so much

    Sorry for a late response, I'm out of home, didn't get an opportunity to reply earlier..

    Anyway, it seems you did the purge part correctly, and the report is also unable to give me any significant hints. So my first suspect is the router configuration.

    Please refer to the manual of your router. The settings and ways to access/change them are quite different across different models, so there is no 'general' guide to cover that aspect for all.

    If you can't find the channel/mode setting for your router, please give us its exact model no., and maybe I can try to look it up for you.

    Also, please try -
    Code:
    sudo rfkill unblock all
    ..then post the full outputs of -
    Code:
    rfkill list all
    sudo iwlist scan
    lsmod

    Re: Broadcom BCM4318

    Hi, I just noticed this thread, or I would have contributed earlier.

    I have an Acer laptop which has the BCM4318 network card. As others have said, the standard driver packaged with Ubuntu doesn't work. To install a working replacement, I simply opened Synaptic Package Manager and got it to install 'firmware-b43-installer'. That installs some other stuff that is needed and (in my experience) it gets the network card working quickly and easily.

    I hope that's some help to you.
    Good wishes
    John
