Ok so I've done some looking around and all things indicate that there is infact drivers available for the wireless but they just dont work out of the box. I'm fine with that, but somehow i cannot get this thing to work at all.
I've tried following the details at this site
but i don't know what WL is, nor is there any updates in the update manager available.. and it wont let me activate the broadcom b43 wireless driver at all (i can atleast see it in jockey) it gives me a failed message, i've checked the log but it doesnt give me much of any details as to why.
there is also a message i noticed when i went to ctrl+alt+f1 to open up a nano of /var/log/jockey.log ... anyway the message told me to go to http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/...devicefirmware to find the correct driver and download it.
Anyway, long story short, i'm sitting here w/ an inoperable wireless netbook like i can use it with an ethernet cable but it really hinders what i want to do w/ it.
