native driver wifi issues

I am a newbie for linux and I am trying to connect to my wifi. At first it was working great, I was using the native driver. Then today I got this error, "Unable to find network interface for selected device (using bcm43xx driver)". How do I fix this? I would prefer not to use ndiswrapper

Which distro are you using so that others using the same distro can tell you how to fix it.
