Are you saying your re-installed the required Broadcom firmware and it still didn't help?
If so, try the remove/add the associated module trick? The 'modprobe' steps that work with your chipset and driver. At last resort before downgrading kernel, visit the 'linux wireless' page for your chipset and driver and follow the steps as if you're starting from scratch or re-installing the wifi driver. http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Devices
Try this page, too:http://wiki.debian.org/WiFi
Without knowing what exactly happened or what is going on when your wifi doesn't work, it's hard to give advice. You might want to provide more info so other users who are experienced with wifi issues can chime in.
Details of: wifi chipset, wifi device - usb,pci, etc.
Commands: lspci or lsusb etc., trying dmesg will show info on the chipset and might give some insight if your wifi card is getting recognized and if modules are loading....
However, it doesn't hurt to have info about your wifi chipset and the drivers that it uses. It's must easier that way to recognize certain things and know what to do in order to troubleshoot these problems.
