First of all, what version of Lubuntu are you running?
And if you followed the thread did you:

sudo apt-get remove --purge bcmwl-kernel-source

Then reboot your machine.
This is usually my main issue when dealing with b43.

You really shouldn't need to modprobe or hand edit any files.  If you
did, I hope you made a backup :)
I have used the b43 module on many computers.

could you also post the output of:
lspci | grep Network
