Since upgrading to 12.10 while it was in beta, I have been unable to connect to wifi, which I was able to do while using 12.04. My laptop is an Acer extensa 5635z.

Maybe fwcutter would help

To install fwcutter:

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install fwcutter

It mainly works for BCM hardware

You can also install fwcutter legacy driver if you are unable find them. Unfortunately you will need to google it
