    Broadcom BCM4352 WiFi Not Working Following Reboot

    I just installed a Broadcom BCM4352 wifi on my Optiplex 9010 AIO running Linux Mint 19.3 (Ubuntu 18.04) and am using the bcmwl-kernel-source driver. It works well and is very fast, except that it requires a "sudo modprobe wl" every time I reboot. I've seen others suggest adding wl to the /etc/modules file, and I did so, but it made no difference. Any other suggestions?

    Thanks for any guidance you can provide.

    I think we should first find out why it doesn't load automagically as expected and why it doesn't even help to add it to /etc/modules!

    Please provide the wireless info as described here. We hope we shall see and fix the problem: https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=370108

    Moved to Mint

    You might want to remove ndiswrapper, that is why you need to sudo modprobe wl

    Jeremy,

    Removed ndiswrapper, but no change --- still requires sudo modprobe wl. Thanks anyway.

    Removed ndiswrapper, but no change --
    How did you do so? I hope with:

    Code:
    sudo apt purge ndiswrapper*
    Followed by a reboot. If you did something different, please try this and then post a new wireless info as requested.
