Good news: It worked ;D

I ran Install Updates and noticed that I hadn't lost the internet yet, so I ran the commands from the other post (below) and they completed successfully BEFORE I rebooted. Then I rebooted and the WiFi still worked.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-installer
sudo apt-get remove bcmwl-kernel-source

Thanks for your help. I should have given the other post more thought before I bothered you. My Linux experience is more than a little rusty.

Other than this hiccup I'm very impressed with Linux Lite.
