paola@paola-Inspiron-1520:~$ sudo apt-get remove broadcom-sta-common
Lettura elenco dei pacchetti... Fatto

Il pacchetto broadcom-sta-common non è installato e quindi non è stato rimosso  ---> Transl: The package broadcom-sta-common is not installed, and then was not removed
0 aggiornati, 0 installati, 0 da rimuovere e 308 non aggiornati.

  14e4:170c Broadcom bcm4401-b0 network card no longer functional

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  This actually happedned when I did an upgrade to 3.2.0-36-generic
  about a week ago.  The network card was working fine until I rebooted
  after the update.  Now to get internet access on this machine I have
  had to use a pcmcia network card.  It appears though I have been
  unable to confirm this, that the bcmlw update blacklisted all broadcom
