I gave up installing wifi drivers in my Presario m2010us

Currently I have a E1505 Dell with a Broadcom 802.11b/g wifi chip.

Seems as though it is giving alot of people grief. all of which seem to have fixed it but me.
So here is what I have done thus far.

1.uninstalled bcmwl-kernal-source from the synaptic package manager.

2. installed b43 installer package and utility for extracting 43xx firmware

3. tried to rfkill the hard block on my wifi but wouldn't let me (no soft block enabled)

Does this make sense to anyone. I followed Ubuntu answers but wasn't successful I guess
