    WIfi not working after installing Ubuntu 13.04 — Broadcom BCM4313

    So my network connection is not working at all after formating my computer and installing Ubuntu 13.04.


    Before formating, I was using Windows 7 in one partition and Ubuntu 12.04 in another. I installed windows first and had to download some drivers to have network, video, etc, working properly. And Ubuntu 12.04 automatically had everything working by itself.


    So I formated my computer, installed Ubuntu 13.04 and can't setup the internet connection.
    My computer is a Dell N4030 and I can't even find the right driver on the company website (at least on the brazilian version that atomatically opens in my browser).


    I tried to install and uninstall STA drivers as well and it didn't worked. I made some progress by installing "Broadcom_Firmware_070513.tar.gz" that someone helped me with (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2163811) and configuring with some command lines, so at least now I can see some avaliable networks.


    I can turn my wifi on, see networks avaliable, but can't connect. It keeps asking my password/authentication over and over again. It's been a day and pretty frustrating. I really like Ubuntu and would like to keep using it.


    Does any of you, please, know how to fix this?

    If the network is from mac (adhoc) try to change the password to something like this $1234567890 on mac, and in the ubuntu exclude the $ when you input the password.
