I was kindly helped on this forum a few months ago to fix my Wifi. Only problem is I have to run the command in the terminal at the start of every session.Each time I need to run-

sudo modprobe -v brcmsmac

How can I make this process run automatically?

Many thanks!

    Hmmm you probably got told half the story: check /etc/modprobe.d/broadcom-sta-dkms.conf and /etc/modprobe.d/broadcom-sta-common.conf and see if that module is blacklisted. if so put a # in front of the line – Rinzwind Jul 9 '14 at 13:58
  • If it's only one command you can use this method: askubuntu.com/questions/48321/… Also, you could write a script with all your commands and run it through the previous method. – jlcs Jul 9 '14 at 16:41

Try add command to rc.local file with nano or gedit. It runs commands, when startup process was ended. Do nothing by default. You can find it in /etc/rc.local
