Bug Description

This bug is similar to the one here: https://launchpad.net/bugs/96797

The case is classic from previous version - Wireless card recognized, but not working.

I could see the card listed and says enabled in the new and shiny Restricted Drivers Manager, but it does not work.

Here's the output of

dpkg -l linux-restricted-modules-common
