This question already has an answer here:

I am running Ubuntu 12.04 and Windows vista on my Acer Extensa 4620Z. Wi-fi works fine in vista. When I try and install the Broadcom STA wireless driver in Ubuntu it says:

Sorry, Installation of the driver failed. Please have a look at the log file for details: /var/log/jockey.log.

When I connected to the internet via Ethernet cable and tried to install the driver the same thing happened. I am new to Ubuntu and any help would be appreciated.

In jockey.log it says

WARNING: /sys/module/wl/drivers does not exist, cannot rebind wl driver DEBUG: BroadcomWLHandler enabled(): kmod disabled, bcm43xx: blacklisted, b43: blacklisted, b43legacy: blackliste

Are you sure you're connected to the internet? You'll get that error when the DNS name cannot be resolved thus you're not connected to the internet. If you open the jockey.log what does it tell you? –  user253416 Feb 28 at 21:11
