If you go into system settings, software and updates, additional drivers should show the broadcom sta driver(aka bcmwl-kernel-source). This driver should work for your wifi

When you removed bcmwl-kernel-source, a blacklist file was left behind. It is preferable to purge, not remove. Let's remove the blacklist file: sudo rm /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-bcm43.conf In some cases, upon boot, the driver b43 also loads and the wireless doesn't work. If this is your case, post back and we'll proceed. We may need to blacklist b43 or ...

OK! FINALLY. after hours and hours trying to figure out what is going on I got my steam fixed. follow these steps and you will be fine. The reason is that steam is trying to use "mesa" drivers and not my ATI Radeon drivers. Stupid steam. Now: first close steam. sudo nano /etc/ld.so.conf.d/steam.conf Then in the editor add these two lines: ...

Same problem, here, last week my laptop LG with Intel Sandy Bridge and Nvidia GForce start freezing in the way you describe. In the past it could freeze from time to time. I move around with the laptop, so at home and work I use a dual screen but in the train (from home to work and back). I don't have the external display. ;-) Now every time I ...

After your system boots, and you verify that there is no sound, try these commands: sudo pulseaudio -k sudo modprobe -r snd_hda_intel sudo modprobe snd_hda_intel Then test to see if sound works. This sequence of commands makes my ALC898-based Audigy Fx PCIe card work normally for as long as the system is booted. If you find that these commands reliably ...

You should sudo apt-get purge bcmwl-kernel-source sudo apt-get install linux firmware Reboot and if wifi still isn't working, you can blacklist a couple modules echo "blacklist b43" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf echo "blacklist ssb" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf Then it should work unless you blacklisted one of the needed ...

It looks like the drivers were made for kernel 2.4/2.6, which is extremely out dated. And are you sure you have a realtek sound card? But anyway see SoundTroubleshootingProcedure.

What windows driver did you use ndiswrapper -l that card is supported in the kernel. If there isn't a wireless switch do echo "blacklist ideapad_laptop" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/ideapad.conf and reboot to see if it is enabled. Then I will help to get the kernel drivers going again Edit: to remove the ndiswrapper version sudo ndiswrapper -r netwsw00 ...

The date-time warning is new in gcc 4.9 I think - it is possibly turned on implicitly by -Wall (and turned into an error implicitly by -Werror). You could try turning it off explicitly using the -Wno- form i.e. by adding -Wno-error=date-time to the CFLAGS.
