WiFi on ubuntu 14.04 using Broadcom BCM43228

On my Acer Aspire V5 571 laptop, WiFi doesn't appear to work out of the box using ubuntu 14.04.

A list of PCI devices shows a Broadcom BCM43228 802.11a/b/g/n installed, but there is no drivers for this device.

# lspci 
03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM43228 802.11a/b/g/n

To resolve this issue, very simply run:

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic
sudo apt-get install --reinstall bcmwl-kernel-source

You should now have WiFi - You don't even need to reboot!
