Michael Zanetti, thank you for reporting this and helping make Ubuntu better.

1) Could you please execute the following in a terminal and post the results to this report:
lspci -vvnn | grep -A 9 Network
apt-cache policy bcmwl-kernel-source
sudo dmidecode -s bios-version
sudo dmidecode -s bios-release-date
sudo dmidecode -s system-version
sudo dmidecode -s baseboard-manufacturer

2) Regarding your Bug Description:
>"UPDATE: Up to kernel 3.13.0-23 a patched working package of bcmwl-kernel-source can be found in the comments of this bug report: ..."

Please do not make people dumpster dive for information elsewhere that should be posted in full detail in the bug description. Hence, could you please provide a click-for-click on how to implement your WORKAROUND?

3) Does using the open source b43 driver provide a WORKAROUND as outlined in ?
