Sudo apt get remove bcmwl-kernel-source
In this article I will show you how to make your wireless connection work on Broadcam BCM network interface card, on Ubuntu, Debian and Linux Mint Systems.. To fix your wireless problem, this is what you have to do: Remove the default driver: $ sudo apt-get remove --purge bcmwl-kernel-source. I have a wireless issue with my HP netbook. I found a fix here: How do I get an Acer Npilfy (BCM) wireless card working? but when I type sudo apt-get install --reinstall bcmwl-kernel-source it tells me that bcmwl-kernel-source could not be downloaded! Any suggestions? The command lspci -nn gives me the number 14e for the controller, so that's why I thought this fix above. A dist-update I just did hung (froze) after printing line: DKMS: install completed. I had to close the terminal to kill process, and to carry on did sudo lsof /var/lib/dpkg/lock kill THE-PID.
