Have tried almost everything on the internet. Have turned off the secure boot via bios too.

  1. sudo modprobe wl returns modprobe: FATAL: Module wl not found in directory /lib/modules/4.4.8-040408-generic

  2. dkms status returns

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because OP broke the system by manually installing another kernel. – guntbert Nov 10 '16 at 19:16

    You're welcome to ask on Unix & Linux though. (Hint: use ctrl+k after highlighting a block of code to format it, or put four spaces before it rather than using backticks) – TheWanderer Nov 11 '16 at 0:45

    @guntbert it is ironic that I did the previous steps following answer from askubuntu(askubuntu.com/a/761828/594165) which made my question off-topic! – Neal Nov 12 '16 at 10:13

    Why is installing another kernel off topic? I don't see why this was closed, I am voting to reopen. – Mark Kirby Nov 14 '16 at 20:47

Assuming that you're running kernel 4.4.8, then none of your dkms modules got built for the new kernel, including the broadcom-sta-dkms that you just added.

To get the broadcom-sta-dkms installed, you'll need to:

  1. open terminal
  2. type sudo dkms build broadcom-sta/6.30.223.271
  3. type sudo dkms install broadcom-sta/6.30.223.271

then dkms status should have changed from:

broadcom-sta, 6.30.223.271: added

to:

broadcom-sta, 6.30.223.271: 4.4.8-040408-generic, x86_64: installed

and:

modinfo wl #(should now work)

You'll need to perform somewhat similar actions on your other dkms modules to get them working again. Secure boot should remain off in the BIOS.

  • well it did work. wifi is working now but suspend is broken again. The reason I had to upgrade my kernal manually was because suspend was not working. Looks like I am back to square one :( – Neal Nov 10 '16 at 18:36
  • Remember that the rest of your dkms modules are broken too. Did you manually install a newer kernel? How much RAM, how much swap? Please vote/accept my answer. – heynnema Nov 10 '16 at 18:48
  • Yes. I had to manually upgrade the kernel as earlier it could not suspend. This is 16.04 with 8G ram and 8.5G swap space. Everything else except the wifi worked properly(including suspend) in the newer kernel but after your step suspend is broken again. – Neal Nov 10 '16 at 18:51
  • Reinstall the original Ubuntu kernel, check your dkms status, and if you still have suspend problems, ask a new question. – heynnema Nov 10 '16 at 18:55
  • Use iwconfig to turn off power management on your wireless device and see if that solves your suspend problem. – heynnema Nov 10 '16 at 19:01
