I have this problem: my Ubuntu 12.04 doesn't not recognyze any wireless networks. I don't know what to do. I've been searching and it seems to be a regular problem for other users, and I tried some of the solutions they've got, but they didn't work for me.
I have installed Window 7 too and the wifi do works with it, so I assume that the card it's not failing.
I'm using a 32bit Toshiba Satellite.
I've checked for Additional Drivers, and the Broadcom STA wireless driver is installed and activated and it says that it's being used. But I cannot see any networks. I can only connect through wired network.
in case ethernet is a Broadcom chip which Ubuntu added the wl driver for whatever mysterious reason. 2 different wireless driver from different chip manufactures for a wireless chip is a wonderment and Ubuntu should not have done that IMO.

I don't know either why I installed the wl driver along with the Realtek. I didn't realize I did that, I think it's the one Ubuntu suggested. It's the only option I got.
