I am using a hp pavilion zd7000, computer says firmware is missing for wireless controller. i also have a wirless g notebook card made by belkin which will scan for networks but wont connect to them for some unknown reason. if i can get either the wireless g card to work or the built in wireless to work thata be great. I am well experienced in windows but very new to linux and how everything works. if anyone can help me. It will be greatly appreciated, i typed in "sudo lspci -v" into the terminal and this is what i got.

Please detach the USB wireless, walk the laptop over to the router and get a temporary wired ethernet connection. Open a terminal and do:
sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-installer b43-fwcutterAfter it concludes, detach the ethernet, reboot and use your new wireless to post and tell us how it's working.
