    Hi
    The 'ath' driver is no good for a Broadcom chip.

    There is enough info in this link to help you get your wireless working. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Br...%28Wireless%29

    Thank you.

    What driver should I download, I'm a beginner.


    Is it this one?
    https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source...~ubuntu12.10.1

    do I have to download the 3 files or only one?

    Re: BCM4322 (Quantal) - How to configure it to access wifi?

    Hopefully you have a cable connected.

    The bcmwl driver is available in the repositories.
    Open a terminal and run these commands
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source
    
    sudo modprobe wl
    Unplug the cable and click on the 'Network' icon, any available networks? If yes choose yours and enter the password for the router.

    If none show leave the cable unplugged and reboot the system, it should be working now.

    If not working after the reboot post the terminal output of
    Code:
    lsmod
    
    lshw -C network

    Thank you

    Re: BCM4322 (Quantal) - How to configure it to access wifi?

    Hello,

    Here is the output, it seems that the driver is not available in the repositories:
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    Package bcmwl-kernel-source is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source

    E: Package 'bcmwl-kernel-source' has no installation candidate
