Cool Ubuntu clean install does not load broadcom b43xx drivers, must use termial scripts.

Loaded the latest version 10.11 ubuntu 64 bit. all is well accept that wireless drivers are not loaded on startup. Terminal must be called and wireless turned on within there. I cannot figure how to or where to include these script lines so that the terminal does not have to be visited. Please, Thanks.

You should be able to get the drivers to load on start up by adding them to the list of kernel modules to load on boot. Try googling "loading kernel modules at startup Ubuntu ". That gave me a lot of results that looked promising.
