I have solved it finally..I went over to

http://www.linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/b43

and followed the directions at the bottom of the page there is a section call switching between drivers.. I followed the commands and my wifi instantly turned on!!

modprobe -r b43 bcma
modprobe -r brcmsmac bcma
modprobe -r wl

then
modprobe b43
