@Xubu-Tur Funny thing. Since my wireless connection is restored, I've restarted my netbook and now I no longer get the above error messages flashing by. Does this mean I should not go the website above? I went to the SanDisk website a couple of days ago to register the new SSD and they also had some videos about firmware. I don't really understand what firmware is and how necessary it is to have the latest firmware. What do you think about it?

@Xubu-Tur I clicked on the button for Broadcom wireless driver and I now have wireless connection. Yay!!! I suppose I should still go to the website above and download the firmware?

@Xubu-Tur I think I finally may have found the solution to this problem: When I start the netbook, after showing the BIOS options, an extremely quick message flashes by (I had to restart my netbook 30 times to read it all) that says, "b43-phy0 ERROR: Firmware file "b43/ucode15.fw" not found b43-phy0 ERROR: Firmware file "b43-open/ucode15.fw" not found b43-phy0 ERROR: You must go to wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/b43#devicefirmware and download the correct firmware for this driver version. Please carefully read all instruction on this website." Are you familiar with this website?

@Xubu-Tur Should I check the radio button for Broadcom 802.11 Linux STA wireless driver source and see if that works?

@Xubu-Tur Before I put this up as a new question: I opened the Additional Drivers utility you suggested and it shows the above.

@Xubu-Tur If you'd like, I'll put this up as a new question. I've put additional output above.

@Xubu-Tur In the Trouble Shooting Guide, it says to "insert your wireless adapter into a suitable port/slot". I'm assuming there's already a wireless adapter inside my netbook -- the specs when I bought it say it has a "Wireless-G Card". So I ran the NetworkManager Tool and it gave me the output above.

@Xubu-Tur An update: I received the SanDisk SSD and installed it to my netbook. I installed Ubuntu 14.04 using the ethernet wire (Verizon FIOS) from my home desktop so updates could be downloaded while installing. The only problem I experienced is I haven't been able to re-establish the wireless connection to the FIOS router. I'm calling Verizon to see if they can help with this, but was wondering if you knew of a fix. Thanks again.

@Xubu-Tur Do you recommend SanDisk over ADATA?

@Xubu-Tur Thanks. I didn't realize new SSDs were that inexpensive. Thank you for your help and patience.

To Xubu-Tur: Both of those links are very similar to what I am experiencing. In the second link, someone recommends a firmware update/reinstallation. He made a bootable msdos usb drive and said his disk was recovered as new. Should I be trying something like that? Also see new edit. Thanks for your help.
