    Hadaka is on a short break.
    matthew@ubuntu:~$ sudo dpkg -i wireless-bcm43142-dkms-6.20.55.19_amd64.deb
    dpkg: error processing wireless-bcm43142-dkms-6.20.55.19_amd64.deb (--install):
    cannot access archive: No such file or directory
    Errors were encountered while processing:
    You need to direct the terminal to the location where you downloaded the deb. Where is that? Downloads as Hadaka suggested previously? Then do:
    Code:
    cd ~/Downloads
    List the contents of the directory:
    Code:
    ls
    Is wireless-bcm43142-dkms-6.20.55.19_amd64.deb listed as one of the files in Downloads? If it is, then install it:
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i wire*.deb
    Please don't guess. In order to get this working requires precision. If in doubt, stop and ask.

    I downloaded some sort of kernel thing, and saw it in there. Could that be it?

    Probably. Let's back up and take another look at it. Let's see what, if anything, you have installed now:
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -s bcmwl-kernel-source
    sudo dpkg -s wireless-bcm43142-dkms
    Once we know that result, we'll propose what I believe is a better solution.

    Re: Wireless Drivers Install Time?

    I don't know about 'Additional Driver', I have asked the question before and people told me that it works, only very very slowly. I cannot say for sure that it doesn't work but it may as well, I always get so fed up that I just abort after waiting forever and seeing no change. Instead I note the driver reported by AD and install from synaptic, it is done in less than a minute and I can see the progress that something is actually happening.

    Here we have an interesting problem. You have the suggested package installed but it doesn't drive your device properly, if at all.

    Although you have installed 12.04:
    #33~precise1-Ubuntu SMP
    The 12.04.4 version includes the 3.11.0-xx kernel, the same as the latest Ubuntu version, Saucy.
    Linux ubuntu 3.11.0-19-generic
    I believe we can try the later Saucy version of bcmwl-kernel-source and abandon the itchy, twitchy wireless-bcm43142-dkms.

    With a working wired ethernet connection, copy and paste these commands:
    Code:
    wget http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu/pool/restricted/b/bcmwl/bcmwl-kernel-source_6.30.223.141+bdcom-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb
    sudo dpkg -i bcmwl*.deb
    Assuming you have no errors, warnings, etc., detach the ethernet, reboot and let us hear your report.
