It's been years since I had to nuke and re-install because of a problem. Think of it as a learning experience.

I think the reason users are so willing to do a re-install is because it's so dead easy but where's the learning curve in that?

Back to the Broadcom issue. That was a problem with proprietary drivers and not a fault of Linux. I was the person responsible for purchasing a lot of Dell laptops, hundreds, and I never had a problem because I spec'd Intel wireless cards. lol

Also NVidia graphics.

Anyway, just because Ubuntu is so easy to install and configure don't give up so easy. Usually the fixes are surprisingly easy too. Google around, even if you don't find your solution you will learn a lot.
It it's not on fire,
It's a software problem.
