Just to be sure, mark both of the packages for re-installation.

Do that, and then try again to connect.
Also, after re-installing the packages, give again the result of

Code: Select all
sudo lshw -c network




P.S.: You can also do it throug terminal like follows:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter firmware-b43-installer

Go to synaptics package manager and make sure that these two packages are installed:

1) b43-fwcutter
2) firmware-b43-installer

Make sure that in additional drivers the recomended STA Broadcom STA driver is DE-activated.

And then open terminal and run:
Code: Select all
sudo modprobe b43


Is your wifi light on? Do you see the available networks in the network manager?


P.s. You do not need the windows wireless drivers. The bcm4311 card works just fine as I am explaining above.

Ok,

Please give again the results of the following commands just to see were you stand right now:

Code: Select all
sudo lshw -c network

and
Code: Select all
sudo rfkill list all

and
Code: Select all
dmesg | grep b43



You say that the wifi light is on. When you go to the network manager, do you see the available networks?

1. Now the WIFI light is ON.

2. In system settings > Network I see both wired & wireless ( Airplane mode OFF).......What exactly do you imply by network manager?

3. If I re install Zorin Ultimate what exactly should I do to get WiFi?

Thanks.

Network manager is the symbol/icon on your panel bar which refers to your wifi or ethernet. It is next to your clock, battery icon, keyboard icon etc. It is usually pictured as two black pc-screens. If you left-click on it, it will list all available networks. Also, make sure that in the end of that list the "wireless network" is enabled/ticked.

If you left-click on network manager do you see the available networks?

In case you need to re-install zorin6, you follow the below procedure to get wireless enabled.

1) Plug an ethernet cable to get internet.
2) If activated, De-activate the STA broadcom driver from additional drivers and reboot.
3) Open synaptics package manager and mark for installation, and install, the two packages "b43-fwcutter" and "firmware-b43-installer".

That's it.
Only if needed, after the above you open terminal and write
Code: Select all
sudo modprobe b43


If all has gone well, you reboot and test if you still have wireless after the reboot.
If not, you open terminal and write:
Code: Select all
sudo gedit /etc/modules

In the file that will open you add in the end of the line the word
b43

You save, exit and reboot to test again.

When you are not connected to any network (neither ethernet, nor wireless) the network manager looks like two pc screens with a red X.
When you connect to wireless it looks like a signal symbol.

So, is everything working now? Have you tried unpluging your ethernet cable to test if your wireless works like it should?
