    Confirming that
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-firmware-nonfree
    followed by a reboot also works for Lubuntu 13.04 (beta).

    for me...the binary driver works perfectly with 4311 in 12.10 and 13.04.
    i also find firmware+b43 to be slow and erratic.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install dkms #assuming you do not already have dkms installed
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall bcmwl-kernel-source
    Repair:dpkg --configure -a Reconfigure:dpkg-reconfigure pkg (-a) Fix:apt-get -f install (pkg) Nuke:dpkg --force-remove-reinstreq -r pkg Corrupt deb:rm /var/cache/apt/archives/pkg Hack dpkg:rm /var/lib/dpkg/info/pkg* Chroot unbootable ubuntu
