Oh, so sorry, obviously my last post did not come through, or I clicked the wrong button (most likely the last option ... :oops: )

Code:
sudo modprobe -r b43

and then
Code:
sudo modprobe b43


made everything come back to life ... :)

Thanks to you I solved it myself! I am so proud ... :D you made me feel a whizkid at 50 tonight!

Thank you!

Please forgive me, here I am one more time about the wireless ... after a reboot the connection is gone again.

After opening the terminal and entering

Code:
sudo modprobe -r b43

and
Code:
sudo modprobe b43

it springs back to life again.

Is there some way to make it permanent?

Thank you in advance,

YES :)

Open /etc/modules for editing:
Code:
sudo gedit /etc/modules

A file should open that contains some text.

Add a NEW line at the bottom that reads:-

b43

SAVE the file .. REBOOT to test.

========================================================

FYI, all modules specified in /etc/modules .. will be loaded at bootup.
