I have been a Linux user since 2001 and an Ubuntu user since 2005. My area of particular interest is networking and wireless. I also participate frequently at ubuntuforums.org in Networking and Wireless.

I am also an Ubuntu member.

You can get your ethernet back with: sudo modprobe b44. Are there any clues here? dmesg | grep wl

comment Ubuntu 12.04 + Wifi not working
The example you refer to is quite old and takes what we now know is the long way to get to the same place. I can provide no documentation aside from dozens of cases I've worked on and four computers in my own home that use the abbreviated method perfectly. Here is a recent sample: ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2234144&highlight=wpa-psk

comment Installing Wireless Drivers on Yoga 11s
Frankly, I have no clue as to what the error Makefile:326: /scripts/Kbuild.include: No such file or directory and Makefile:592 /arch/Makefile: No such file or directory is telling us. The file compiles correctly, albeit with a warning or two, on my 3.13.0-34 system. I suggest you ask a new question with that in the title to see if we can overcome that hurdle.

comment Kernel module loading order - that is module “wl”(wireless) load first, then “b44”(lan)- how to enable this order when starting up?
It is not a matter of pick the one you like, it is a matter of most devices work with one and not the other; but a few work well with one and barely at all with the other. Please see: ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2214110

comment Alfa AWUS036H USB wireless adapter not recognized
The lsusb results appear identical. Is the device recognized on any other computers? Is there any recognition if you open a terminal and run: tail -f /var/log/syslog and then insert the device? Get out of tail with Ctrl+c. I am starting to wonder if the device is electrically defective.

@AhmedElsokary /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-wlan0 is not an Ubuntu file, I believe it is a Red Hat/Fedora/CentOS file.

With b43 loaded and not wl, does the interface start with or without power management? From terminal: iwconfig. If it is on, try switching it off and see if it helps: sudo iwconfig wlan0 power off. If so, we can amend one file to make it persistent. Sadly, much of Broadcom's own documentation doesn't square with our real-life observations.

Wired or wireless? What is the device from the terminal: lshw -C network? Thanks.
