I've found these bug reports:
You can install the driver manually by installing package
I had this problem on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx).
$ uname -a Linux laptop 2.6.38-13-generic #57~lucid1-Ubuntu SMP Tue Mar 6 19:39:06 UTC 2012 i686 GNU/Linux
Looking around they recommended installing
bcmwl-kernel-source but that didn't help, as at some point it failed to install (didn't found linux/autoconf.h).
The solution was to install
bcmwl-modaliases from the deb package. You can download the deb package for i386 architecture from Launchpad.
