Hello folks. At my last post about Installing Kernel in the Ubuntu 10.10 we have learned how to use the new kernel. After installed it, I’ve realized that my WiFi card was not working. It is a BCM43225 802.11b/g/n. To identify what is yours, open a shell and run:


This command shows up information about all PCI buses and devices in the system. In my case, the WiFi card is identified by:

02:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM43225 802.11b/g/n (rev 01)

However, to solve this issue, is so simple, just reinstall the package bcmwl-kernel-source:

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

That’s it. More information about WiFi card, you can find in https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Broadcom_wireless.

See you at the next time.
