Ubuntu 10.10 : Wi-Fi reloaded

Wifi problem solved when I tried to install Broadcom’s B43 drivers for my Dell Inspiron 1525. On its automatic Installation for additional drivers I was getting error

SystemError: installarchives() failed

So I got a link http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1593717
Steps I followed are :-

sudo apt-get –purge remove firmware-b43-installer
sudo apt-get –purge remove dkms
sudo apt-get –purge remove bcmwl-kernel-source
sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source
sudo reboot

This make my laptop’s Wi-fi in working state .
