comment Installing Git on Ubuntu, packet not found
brcmsmac is included in 14.04.1 by default. The driver needn't be downloaded. The needed firmware is included in the package linux-firmware.

comment Ubuntu Wifi and drivers problem
If you have an interface wlan0 then the required driver ath9k is already installed. When you click the Network Manager icon, with the ethernet detached, do you see a list of wireless networks? What happens when you click yours?

comment Intel Corporation Wireless-N 7260 card dies randomly
Several versions of the driver will accept -7 or -8, depending on what's available. So, is your system now stable?

comment Intel Corporation Wireless-N 7260 card dies randomly
What does dmesg tell you? The -7 version reads as "loaded firmware version 22.1.7.0 op_mode iwlmvm" If the driver loads the -8 version, it reads as "loaded firmware version 22.24.8.0 op_mode iwlmvm" and -9 reads as "loaded firmware version 23.214.9.0 op_mode iwlmvm" The version of the driver iwlwifi determines which firmware version(s) will load.

comment Wifi not working - Broadcom b4312
It is hard to tell from the logs since it is working as expected. We might be able to tell more from a log pulled when it doesn't work. I hope it is solved now.

Is the stability better, worse or the same when the -7 version loads?
