Hello Ubuntu Community,
I have a Dell Inspiron E1505 running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. When I first installed the operating system, my broadcom wired network module wasn't recognized. I was able to troubleshoot that issue to the blacklist-bcm43 conf file and I commented out the "Blacklist b43 / Blacklist b43 Legacy / Blacklist b44" lines. This fixed the issue until today when, after updating the os, the lines became unhashed once again. I went in to fix it, but after about a minute of internet use, the lines became unhashed yet again. The only website I was trying to access was drive.google.com
Is there some way to prevent the system from editing the blacklist-bcm conf file, or use another work around to bypass the blacklist?
Also, I'm a bit of an Ubuntu novice (~1 year with the os, ~2 years with linux in general) so the more step-by-step the explanation, the better.
Thank you, John
