Hi,

Please first connect your network card to the wireless router using an ethernet cable (also known as a LAN cable).

In order to gather essential troubleshooting information about your wireless card, please follow this procedure:

Step 1: Open Terminal from "Applications->Accessories->Terminal"

Step 2: Please copy-paste the following command from the https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu website in Firefox into the Linux Terminal. Do NOT copy-paste from the Email message into the Terminal, as that will only copy PART of the command. The command STARTS with the word sudo and ENDS with the word lsmod. So please copy-paste the ENTIRE command below from Firefox into a Terminal, press <enter>, then enter password when sudo asks for password, then press enter again.

Tip: If you have a wheel mouse or 3 button mouse you do not need to type commands into the Terminal. Highlight the command written on the page. Move your cursor anywhere in the Terminal and press the wheel or middle button. Automatic Copy and paste! No spelling mistakes! No Typos! No other errors!

sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install hwinfo grep; sudo lshw -C network; rfkill list; sudo iwlist scanning; cat /etc/network/interfaces; cat /etc/lsb-release; lspci -nn; lsusb; sudo lshw -short; uname -a; dmesg | egrep 'acx|at76|ath|b43|bcm|CX|eth|ipw|irmware|isl|lbtf|orinoco|ndiswrapper|NPE|ound|p54|prism|rtl|rt2|rt3|rt6|rt7|usb|witch|wl'; iwconfig; cat /etc/modprobe.d/* | egrep 'acx|at76|ath|b43|bcm|CX|eth|ipw|irmware|isl|lbtf|orinoco|ndiswrapper|NPE|p54|prism|rtl|rt2|rt3|rt6|rt7|witch|wl'; sudo hwinfo --netcard ; cat /var/lib/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.state; sudo lsmod

Step 3: Please post results (copy/paste terminal output) on this thread. The troubleshooters here need to see the full Terminal output from running the above command.

Regards,

Mark

Hi,

You need to install the following Broadcom driver package using apt-get
or Synaptic package manager: bcmwl-kernel-source

This will of course require a working wirED Internet connection in
Ubuntu. (wired, not wireless)

For example: using the Terminal, you need to run the following commands
to install bcmwl-kernel-source:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source

Then reboot and retest wireless using Network Manager.

A similar explanation can be found at the end of this thread:

https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ubuntu-docs/+question/89142

Sere here for more details about PCI-ID 14e4:432b:

http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/b43

Wireless adapters with PCI-ID 14e4:432b (like your wireless adapter)
require the installation of the wl driver, which means you need to
install the bcmwl-kernel-source package.

Regards,

Mark

Thanks Mark Rijckenberg, that solved my question.
