HP Pavilion g1310, no wireless in Linux after kernel upgrade

At some point I remember downloading Broadcom wireless driver sources from their website and compiling them manually. Some time later I upgraded Linux kernel from to and my wireless stopped working. With lspci I could see the device recognized by the system; however, lsmod would not show any wireless driver loaded.  This time I chose to install the driver source from the repository, which also compiles the sources and installs the driver:
    apt-get install --reinstall bcmwl-kernel-source
