I have an imac that is running Ubuntu 16.04, and has been for a months now... but one day I booted it up and the wireless card just decided to stop working. As far as I can tell it can detect the card but just won't use it. It has a Broadcom BCM4321 802.11a/b/g/n and it was working fine for a while then just stopped. 

 

Thanks ahead of time   :bananas:   , 

 

 

 

 

Specs:

2 GB of RAM

Intel core 2 cpu T7400 @ 2.16 GHz x 2

32 bit 

Gallium 0.4 on ATI RV530

It may sound like an obvious answer but have you tried reinstalling the driver?
