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.

comment Unable to Make Network Connection!
Glad it's working! There are good explanations here: askubuntu.com/questions/55868/… and here: ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2214110 Unfortunately, Broadcom keeps their firmware as proprietary and not open source. If it were open source, it could be included in Ubuntu by default.

comment Ethernet and wifi not working after package update 12.04 LTS
What did the command arch tell you? If it reports i686, you need the 32-bit version, which is tricky and may not work. If it reports x86_64, then you need the 64-bit version.
