I've upgraded to Ubuntu 12.04 and my wireless isn't working anymore.

Here is some information about the system:

$ cat /etc/modprobe.d/* | grep bcm
# Warning: This file is autogenerated by bcmwl. All changes to this file will be lost.
blacklist bcm43xx

blacklist bcma
#blacklist bcm43xx
blacklist bcm43xx

$ sudo gedit blacklist.conf

[sudo] password for alexandre: 

$ rfkill list all

0: acer-wireless: Wireless LAN

    Soft blocked: yes
    Hard blocked: no

$ rfkill unblock 0

$ rfkill list all

0: acer-wireless: Wireless LAN
    Soft blocked: no
    Hard blocked: no

$  lspci -nn | grep 0280

06:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN [14e4:4311] (rev 01)

Computer Acer Aspire 5315. Any ideas on how I can solve this?
