    Here goes:

    Code:
       person@person-Inspiron-1545:~$ dpkg -l | grep bcmwl  
    
     ii  bcmwl-kernel-source                         6.20.155.1+bdcom-0ubuntu0.0.2           Broadcom 802.11 Linux STA wireless driver source  
     person@person-Inspiron-1545:~$
    Seems okay now though I did a lot of head-scratching.

    Cheers.

    Awesome ! I had blacklisted this version in my mind.. Maybe that was ....0ubuntu0.0.1 or even earlier.

    Thanks for the confirmation. Hope it keeps working as nicely as it is currently.

    When I tried the update via Terminal I lost the wireless connection and the update froze. When I Used SPM I noticed the wireless connection dropped but immediately reconnected.

    Glad to be of help
