    "Here" being the forums? Certainly.
    This thread? Generally, one topic/thread is appropriate. It's easier to focus on a single problem, and the title can draw assistance.

    By here i meant this thread. And as i said i made a new one because i was not receiving help, now i am so once i finish my other problem that is in a separate thread wouldn't it make more sense to revive this instead of making a new one while also inaccurately labeling it as solved.

    I might recommend reading the Posting Guidelines. If you post a Mac problem 25+ posts into a "Broadcom wifi driver" thread, it will likely go unnoticed. Then you'll start yet anther thread anyway.

    Re: A plethora of problems with the infamous Broadcom wifi drivers.

    I don't know if this is helpful or not but Xubuntu 12.04 installed the Broadcom driver found via applications -> settings -> additional drivers and it works fine. The wifi shows "Broadcom BCM 4312 802.11 b/g LP-PHY". I also see "Marvell Technology group ltd. 88E8040 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller". On this machine at least, there's an ethernet port covered by a rubber cover on the left side in front by the headphone jack. Perhaps this varies by model?

    Hi,since you have multiple machines, it would be best to
    create a thread for each machine.Please include the wireless script
    with each post to help determine the problem.
