    wifi problem using kernel 3.15 rc5:

    installation of 3.15 rc5, following the procedure described above, went smoothly without any errors. This is for 32 bit lubuntu-14.04.
    However, I cannot establish network connection via WIFI (bcm 4309); cable connection works,though).
    Same problem with earlier versions of kernel 3.15; I tested rc3 and rc4.

    On the other hand, WIFI works well with kernels 3.14 and 3.13.
    Any advice?
