And the output of dmesg as below:

Please tell us more. From a terminal, issue the command '/sbin/lspci
-nnv', find the first two lines of the output that describe your
wireless, and post them. Note: I'm not certain that lspci is in /sbin.
If you get a "command not found", become root and issue the command
'lspci -nnv'.

Second, issue the command 'dmesg | grep b43' and post the results.
