I ran this, which right now sure if "bcm5974" is "broadcom" or not:

[CODE] sudo dmesg | grep bcm5974
[    7.233621] input: bcm5974 as
[    7.245991] usbcore: registered new interface driver bcm5974 [/CODE]

I'm going to see if I can now get wifi to connect to the home network,
which is listed already, it wasn't refreshing to the new job wifi yesterday.

But, today, using ethernet there were another "116 packages to upgrade &&
13 new packages" which I ran through . . . rebooting now, etc.
