Ubuntu: Broadcom Wireless for Compaq 615 on Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS [duplicate]


This question already has an answer here:

I have a problem where after recent updates my Wifi stopped working. I can detect my wireless network but when attempting to join it the wifi icon in the task bar just 'rolls' the wifi signal indicator up and down and never actually connects. It would often ask for the password a few times. I've tried changing the Wifi password, restarting the machine, disabling/enabling the wifi adapter, but nothing seems to be working. I can see the network but just can't connect.

Please help. How can I fix this.

I am using: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY [14e4:4315] (rev 01)

The 14e4 was Orange/red in the report, not sure if that means something?

Anyone know I can can get my laptop to actually connect to the Wifi again?


Please open a terminal and do:

sudo apt-get purge bcmwl-kernel-source  

Now, with a temporary wired ethernet connection:

sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-lpphy-installer  

Detach the ethernet, reboot and let us have your report.
