Did you reboot after you purged bcmwl? The missing Radeon firmware is another issue but not significant to your Broadcom wireless.

Certainly can with every version of wl. I strongly suspect that her wireless isn't working because she already installed wl and it has b43 blacklisted, in fact.

Those instructions are correct if you have a Broadcom wireless device only. Let's confirm what you have. Please open a terminal Ctrl+Alt+t and run: lspci -nn | grep 0280. Please edit your question to add the result and we'll propose a solution. Welcome to askubuntu.

Is the encryption WPA2-TKIP or WPA2-AES? AES is strongly preferred.

comment Network (LAN) stops working randomly - reconnecting helps
Just plug the command in and wait until it disconnects or until you have 5-7 days of success and you know it works. The setting will only go away if you reboot. Ditto the cable!
