that listed are Broadcom Linux sta something only..that normal right?

Well the wl driver *should* work for that card, but after what we did it *should* be using the b43 driver .. what's the output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo lshw -C network

Is there anyway to install driver (if indeed I'm missing some of it) using github or something?

run:
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe -r b43 ssb wl brcmfmac brcmsmac bcma
then
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe b43
tell me if wireless started working, and post the output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo lshw -C network
again.

Be aware this will revert to the wl driver on a reboot .. so do NOT reboot between those commands .. but if it works, we can make it permanent.

Run:
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe -r b43 ssb wl brcmfmac brcmsmac bcma
then
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe b43 nohwcrypt=1
and see if it'll connect now

If not, please describe exactly what happened when you tried to connect ?

Everything you're describing here indicates to me that you're entering an incorrect Network password.  I'm saying this because I've managed to replicate the, disconnected-you are now offline info window you're referring to.  I did this by trying to access another network with the wrong Network password.  With the settings you have, you should be granted internet access via your Wireless connection.  If you don't have access to the original documentation your Internet Service Provider gave you to verify this password.  You need to contact them directly and ask them to reset the password for you.  This is the only thing I can think that's causing your issue  :-\.

What's the contents of
Code: [Select]
gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules
and the output from:

ls /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections
