Hey, I am trying to dual boot OS X and Ubuntu 10.04. Install went well, but I can't seem to figure out how to connect to the internet. when I boot into Mac OS X I can connect, but not in ubuntu. Any help please?
Thanks!

Hook it up with a cable, so you are connected then:


sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

Then you go to System -> Administration -> Hardware drivers

Hopefully you can select the Broadcom driver there.
