Unhappy No wireless network connection after upgrade to Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

Hi, I am using a HP Pavillion DV6000 laptop with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. Before the upgrade from Ubuntu 11, the (Broadcom 802.11 BCM 4311) wireless networking was working just perfectly. Since the upgrade, I am no longer able to connect to my wireless router.

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver with no success.

This package contains Broadcom 802.11 Linux STA wireless driverfor use with Broadcom's BCM4311-, BCM4312-, BCM4313-, BCM4321-,BCM4322-, BCM43224-, and BCM43225-, BCM43227- and BCM43228-basedhardware.

Please advise what course of action I can take to get this working again.
