You do not need both bcmwlhigh6 and bcmn43xx64. I believe the latter is correct, so let's remove the former. sudo ndiswrapper -e bcmwlhigh6 sudo modprobe -r ndiswrapper && sudo modprobe ndiswrapper Any improvement? If not, post: dmesg | grep ndis I will edit my answer to refine a solution once we know more details from you.

Unfortunately it was set to gcc-4.4 at the time of update.So I guess the driver is compiled using gcc-4.4 which was failed to load. To resolve this,I did Switch gcc to gcc-4.8 In Additional driver tab of ...

Then, in a ...

First, check if your ethernet driver is b44. If so, we will use that information in a possible later step. sudo lshw -C network Next, I suggest, for your rather rare and lightly documented wireless device, that we try the proprietary driver: sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source If it turns out that your ethernet driver is b44, it will now ...
