Configure Wireless Driver In Ubuntu
Above is the link to a very nice article from ubuntu documentation to configure wireless driver on Ubuntu. However the catch in the article is that for the manual driver configuration, after installing the driver when you try to activate it from “system->administration->hardware drivers” or “Additional Drivers” (if using unity), it gives error and you wont be able to load the driver on each restart and you have to do it manually. To overcome this, just add an entry of the driver in /etc/modules file. Like for e.g. in my case of bcm4312 bcm driver, append following line in /etc/modules:
b43
Now I am enjoying the Wifi in my Ubuntu 12.04. 🙂
