I have an Asus 1015E-DS02

I've tried the solutions here to no avail.

I've also tried the solutions on here and here even though my wifi hasn't worked at all since the upgrade.

I'd also like to note that I upgraded to 16.04 almost immediately after upgrading from 12.04 to 14.04. I'm almost certain that Wi-Fi did work at 14.04.

Is there any significance to it saying that "This device is using an alterate driver?

Here's the results of this all in one script.

########## wireless info END ############

EDIT: After following this forum I've noticed that lspci -vnn -d 14e4: gives Capabilities: <access denied>. When looking for /var/lib/dkms/broadcom-wl/ as suggested, it did not exist. I don't know what that means but it feels important maybe.

EDIT: The solutions here did not work either.

EDIT: A friend of mine took a look at it and thinks that it might be related to a problem with the UEFI.

  • Perhaps it's buried in your log files some place but in your first sentence could please state your computer make and model and wifi card make and model if you know it? – WinEunuuchs2Unix Sep 25 '16 at 2:30
  • @WinEunuuchs2Unix Done, thanks. Is the Wi-Fi card model what shows up in the second picture? – FracturedRetina Sep 25 '16 at 2:37
  • your second screen snapshot is blurry on my screen and I can't make our your model number, perhaps to my bad vision. I did notice "STA" in there and people were writing about that last night in AskUbuntu so you might want to search on that for answers. – WinEunuuchs2Unix Sep 25 '16 at 2:42
  • I'm not sure the drivers brcmsmac, bcma are correct. There were many changes since 12.04. Why would someone install and upgrade12.04 > 14.04 > 16.04 instead of installing 16.04 from scratch. How does it work in a 16.04 live session? – user589808 Sep 25 '16 at 3:08

    First fix the kernel by sudo apt install linux-generic. Everything else may start working. – Pilot6 Nov 6 '16 at 20:55

First you need to install the correct kernel by

sudo apt install linux-generic

Then remove the wrong driver by

sudo apt purge bcmwl-kernel-source

After a reboot everything should work.

  • Very good catch! I didn't look at the kernel version at all. – David Foerster Nov 7 '16 at 17:45
