    Re: broadcom b43

    Post back the output of lspci so we can which of the Broadcom chip sets it is as that will make a difference as to what we suggest.

    In the mean time, if you can temporarily hardwire your PC to the router you can try additional drivers to see if it finds/recommends anything.

    Re: broadcom b43

    you might try to solve your trouble by following these instructions:
    STA drivers:
    Code:
    cd /cdrom/pool/main/d/dkms
    sudo dpkg -i dkms*
    cd /cdrom/pool/main/p/patch
    sudo dpkg -i patch*
    cd /cdrom/pool/main/f/fakeroot
    sudo dpkg -i fakeroot*
    cd /cdrom/pool/restricted/b/bcmwl
    sudo dpkg -i bcmwl-kernel-source*

    b43/b43 legacy:
    Code:
    cd /cdrom/pool/main/b/b43-fwcutter/
    sudo dpkg -i b43-fwcutter*
    and then click on this link: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wi...nternet_access

    Your device is not broadcom
    Code:
    02:00.0 Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01)
    I'd prefer to see
    Code:
    lspci -nnk
