If you're using a Broadcom WiFi controller then you may need to blacklist a module. You're using the Broadcom BCM43227 controller, which does indeed require the wl (Broadcom STA) module (see b43 and b43legacy), but read through the thread: wlan and ethernet not working after installation [Solved] (the first posts about the WiFi).

Many thanks, Fitzcarraldo--that worked perfectly, and I now have wifi.
