Just installed Uberstudent on my Inspiron 3543, and it's my first time using Linux. Wi-fi functionality doesn't seem to be available. My network controller is a Broadcom BCM 43142.

On the UberStudent.org main page if you click the "Read more" button you will see that UberStudent 4.3 is derived from Ubuntu 14.04 LTS; with Ubuntu's extensive documentation useful search terms would be "bcm43142 ubuntu 14.04"...

The top result (AskUbuntu.com) says that "bcmwl-kernel-source ...is the official working driver for BCM43142 for Ubuntu 14.04". Using an alternate method of internet connectivity [such as an ethernet cable], hit the F12 key to open the Guake terminal window to download an updated list of available packages, then download and install the missing wifi driver...
Code:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source

After installing the missing wifi driver, restart your laptop.
