[Bug 514623] Re: Wireless does not work after new security updated

Added Information:

I downloaded the new updates through update manager and install them.
After installing, I uninstalled the broadcom drivers and reinstalled.
The software recognized the wireless modem and I was able to stay
connected.  I then shut down the system and rebooted.  The driver DID
NOT  find the wireless device and would not work.  I then removed both
of the these packages,  "bcmwl-kernel-source" and "bcmwl-modaliases"
from my system via synaptic package manager.  Also removed the hardware
drive and the network connection from my system then rebooted.  Then I
reinstalled the packages, rebooting in between installs and reloaded the
hardware driver and reset the network conneciton.  After I install the
driver my system would see the wireless and it would work until I shut
off my computer and rebooted.  Then I loose the wireless function again.

Is there a solution to this problem?  I really need my wireless to work
because I am not in a wired area all the time and I use my laptop a lot.
