This morning I installed a kernel update (3.5.1-1.fc17 x86_64) and lost my WiFi connection, I use the broadcom-wl (188.8.131.52-2 package) from rpmfusion for my BCM4312 WiFi device.

Here's my issue. in order to get sound from my headphone jack i need to update the kernel. wifi works fine out of the box with 12.04.1 but as soon as i update the kernel to anything newer than 3.2 my wifi flakes out. i can see the list of available networks but it wont connect. i am using a 27 inch imac 12,2
oddly enough, i can use a usb dongle with no issues.
Hi!I have been upgrading my laptop (a Fujitsu-Siemens Amilio D 1845) from Crunchbang 9.04 to Crunchbang Statler XFCE. Everything seems fine except for two things. I lost swedish keyboard, but I think I can fix that. But worse, I lost wifiI cant get any wifi connection neither with the built-in wifi, nor with a zyxel wifi dongle. Nothing appears in "Network manager" any longer.
sorry for reposting this topic but I think maybe this forum is the more appropriate place....
I recently installed the realtime kernel according to this manual
used the version given there...
I'm new to Linux and just installed Ubuntu last night as a dual boot with Windows 7. When I first installed it using USB the WiFi worked. Then I figured out how to use the Software Updater and updated it, downloading about 200 MB of updates.
Then the WiFi stopped working. For the record, I've seen numerous threads about this same topic and have tried basically everything they have said to try.
Sorry to resurrect the old thread. But I'm still have trouble connecting via wifi, and hoping some might be able to help me.I have done the suggested to /etc/modprobe.d/b43.conf file.After doing, this yesterday, I had an active wifi for 5 seconds just before I rebooted.
