Broadcom Wireless Drivers Installation : Ubuntu[SOLVED]

While one installs a fresh Ubuntu OS in any machine,typically he finds an initial deterrent as the Wifi adapter is not found  installed.This post gives a step by step direction on how and what to do,to get the Wifi working....and this happens since the same is not installed by default.

Since the PCI.ID initials for any Wifi broadcom adapter is prefixed 14e4,thus first we need to find the exact PCI.ID

Type 
lspci -nn -d 14e4:
  
Once you get the PCI.ID,you just need to ref the following table and find the corresponding driver to be installed.In our case is 14e4:4365 rev 01,so we choos the corresponding bcmwl-kernel-source
PCI.ID              14.04 LTS                        16.04+

  1. I do agree with all the ideas you have presented in your post. They’re really convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are very short for newbies. Could you please extend them a little from next time? Thanks for the post..
