I was trying to get Ubuntu working on old laptop. I believed it's wireless driver issue.
Output from a couple of commands:
myhost@ubuntu:~$ lsb_release -a No LSB modules are available. Distributor ID: Ubuntu Description: Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS Release: 12.04 Codename: precise myhost@ubuntu:~$ lspci | grp Network 0c:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN (rev 01) myhost@ubuntu:~$ iwconfig eth0 no wireless extensions. lo no wireless extensions.
Then I google it and found article to reinstall wireless driver at How to Install Broadcom Wireless Drivers
So I did command
sudo apt-get purge bcmwl-kernel-source (Done)
sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source (Error as below lines)
... Loading new bcmwl-18.104.22.168+bdcom DKMS files... First Installation: checking all kernels... Building only for 3.8.0-29-generic Building for architecture x86_64 Building initial module for 3.8.0-29-generic Error!

FATAL: Error running install command for wl
Any suggestion to fix it? Thanks First.
