Bug Description

On my MacBook 5,1 , after running the updates in the Update Manager and rebooting, the wireless stopped working. I rebooted into the old kernel and it worked just fine. Going back to the new kernel, I went to Additional Drivers and noticed that the Broadcom STA Wireless Driver was deactivated. When I went to activate it, I got the following error message: "Sorry, installation of this driver failed. Please have a look at the log file for details: /var/log/jockey.log"; this log file should be attached.
