    I installed 13.04 and get no wireless. I get an error on boot something about b43 etc...

    dv9000@dv9000-HP-Pavilion-dv9000-EZ452UA-ABA:~$ lspci -vvnn | grep 14e4

    03:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN [14e4:4311] (rev 01)

    Re: b43 wireless, how can i make it work

    fixed with this here

    So why cant it just work, cause its non-free?
    So how much does it cost to make it work for ubuntu?
    If it is a BCM4311 these should take care of it ( do with an ethernet connection)

    sudo apt-get remove --purge bcmwl-kernel-source
    sudo apt-get install linux-firmware-nonfree
    sudo modprobe b43
