    It probably has some clues.
    I put the command in terminal. Here's what you got.

    Re: Wifi Problem with Dell Inspiron Laptop

    You have:
    DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
    DISTRIB_RELEASE=12.04
    DISTRIB_CODENAME=precise
    DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS"
    But we tried to install:
    wireless-bcm43142-oneiric-dkms
    We have a bit of a version mis-match here. Sometimes we get lucky and it magically works. Other times, as in here, it doesn't:
    make[1]: *** [/var/lib/dkms/wireless-bcm43142-oneiric-dkms/6.20.55.19~bdcom0602.0400.1000.0400/build/wl.o] Error 1
    make: *** [_module_/var/lib/dkms/wireless-bcm43142-oneiric-dkms/6.20.55.19~bdcom0602.0400.1000.0400/build] Error 2
    Your wireless module never built correctly and so it's not yet working. I am going to look for a 32-bit precise package. Back in a few minutes, hopefully.

    Please try this: http://askubuntu.com/questions/17510...stro-3460-3560

    Note it says it's written for 12.04.

    Click the i386 link. When the second page opens, click 'Dowload' in the upper right. I don't know where downloads go on your system. Downloads? Desktop? Whichever it is, do:
    Code:
    cd Desktop  <--or Downloads as appropriate
    sudo dpkg -i wireless-bcm43142-dkms-6.20.55.19*.deb
    Post the resulting terminal output so we can see if it succeeded.

    Maybe I clicked the wrong download link because I notice it doesn't say precise? Can you direct me to the exact file I need.

    I thought I did direct you to the correct file. Let's see:
    Code:
    cat /var/lib/dkms/wireless-bcm43142-oneiric-dkms/6.20.55.19~bdcom0602.0400.1000.0400/build/make.log
    Thanks.

    hi, westie457 post#39 of this thread offered the file.
    it looked on the surface to be the same one we were
    about to load, but now i see the .deb file name is the same for
    all of them...perhaps his file is the correct one.
    @joey...let chili555 decide if he wants you to load it.

    thanks

    It's the exact same file. I tried it. Didn't work.

    Sorry for not waiting. But I figured it wouldn't hurt to try.
