I have a hp dv6-7014nr and I just installed ubuntu on it and after some trouble I have my wireless working for the most part. The one last problem I have is that wireless N still is not working, I can only access G networks.

My wireless card is the BCM4313 broadcom wireless adapter.I am using the bcmwl-kernel-source driver.

Have you tried an alternative installer perhaps the b43fwcutter which can sometimes do a better job with other wifi elements such as N

Open up a terminal and type this.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter

Then get it switched on by trying the following

sudo modprobe -r b43 ssb
sudo modprobe b43

Have a go and let us know if it works
