Quick and easy solution is to configure NetworkManager service to manage your network connections instead of the network service. I have the same card BCM 14e4: I’ve tried but probably screwed up in the process installing the “wl””b43” and “brcmsmac” drivers, or at linuux I think I did.
Broadcom chip intermittent problems This driver module, in author’s experience, is sometimes known to require multiple reboots to make the WiFi work. Strange as it may be, it worked for me, though you’d be sacrificing certain abilities, especially if you have more than 4GB of RAM.
