I have Ubuntu 16.04.2 in a MacBook Pro ~mid '10 that only has internet connection after a suspension, before it shows the wireless element (on the top bar) as "disabled".

I've tried to activate the privative Broadcom driver from Ubuntu but fails, even with internet (from USB), and by doing this it could be selected, but didn't actually do anything. Also tried this, to no avail.
