[Edit: the solution provided by chili555 solved my problem. However, note that I further had to remove the drivers "brcmsmac" and "bcma" from blacklisting in order for them to load at each boot (files "broadcom-sta-common.conf" and "blacklist-brcmsmac.conf", not sure it is needed for both files though...). Hope this won't lead to any conflicts.]
I've just upgraded my ubuntu from 12.04 to 13.10 by successive upgades. My main problem after those is that I have trouble to connect to wireless.
Looking through the net, I saw that many people already met this problem, but neither of the methods i tried to fix it did work:
- After Ubuntu Upgrade, cannot connect to wifi(wireless)
- 13.10 BCM4313 network problems after update
The main effect of the bcmwl-kernel-source driver re-installation (whatever was by the "Softwares & Updates" desktop menu or by the terminal) was to allow the Broadcom card to be detected. Unfortunately, my laptop is still not able to connect to the wireless networks (like for the question: Can find network but cannot connect to it Ubuntu 13.10)
Therefore, I would greatly appreciate any help about that! Many thanks in advance.
Here some details of my hardware and drivers:
