et al:

So on reboot I went & checked wifi and no go.  I went to Add'l Drivers and
I changed driver settings for Broadcom to "do not use" anf then rather than
rebooting I tried to again "use the device" and it gave an error:  "

pk-client-error-quark: Error while installing package: installed
bcmwl-kernel-source package post-installation script subprocess returned
error exit status 10 (313)"

I'll try to reboot and then try again to add it back in.
