Hello. New installation of Gnomebuntu 15.10 with updates carried out. Broadcom wireless does not work although the laptop recognizes when I toggle the hardware switch, an air plane icon pops up in the tray. Been through the forums for a couple of days now trying to fix it. Time to ask for help. Find below, the output of your script for network related information. Thank you for your work.
