For now, wifi doesnt work. So I will try to redo what I did before and do the commands you pasted. I will do it tomorrow morning though

So i tried to connect to the internet via ethernet cable attached to router. The laptop doesnt see anything. I mean it doesnt have internet connection via ethernet nor doesnt see wifi. I tried opening browsers but they wont open now. If I type lshw, it says that there is no such command. I didn't type any extra commands, just the one you advised... So now it doesnt even seem like I can reverse it back to where I was....

For whatever reasons laptop turns off in half an hour now, something is surely wrong with the laptop right now. It used to turn off in 15 secs and now it seems like forever

I looked through forums to find possible solutions but it seems like there is no way to reverse it back where I was before in the terminal because laptop doesnt see neither wifi nor ethernet cable. So is there a way to either manually find files that have been installed and delete them? If not, would reinstalling Linux help?(at least to get back where it was before, or there were changes in the system?)

the wl driver **could** be installed manually, but it's not straight forward.

If the cabled connection is also kaput I'd be more likely to simply reinstall, because it sounds like a bigger problem than just the wireless drivers.

If this isn't a dual boot setup, I'd just reinstall .. then install the wl drivers by following this post:

As for now, I am not really sure what happened (I guess it proves that I am really novice-noob in linux), but somehow Wi-Fi works fine. I am not still sure if it's temporary of commands above really helped... So I am just waiting for you to answer...

You're done :) .. you replaced the default bcma-pci-bridge driver with the wl driver which is better for your card.

Oh, that makes sense. Hopefully, I will never face this problem ever again. Thank you a lot for your help  :)
P.S. I am not really sure how to set this topic as SOLVED.
