I just wiped my Dell Latitude's E6410's hard drive and installed ubuntu-12.04-desktop-amd64.iso. The wireless connection kept timing out, but the wired connection is perfectly fine.
I already tried to
sudo apt-get remove bcmwl-kernel-source sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source
but it did not solve the problem.
