Since you pointed to that thread on Ubuntu Forums, I assume you have the Broadcom 4365 wireless card.

First, The version of the 5520 that is certified ships with a Realtek wifi card, so your system technically isn't certified.

When the bug I've refrenced above has been marked Fix Released, that will indicate that there is an updated driver available that will support the Broadcom 4365 chips.

Can you help with this problem?
