    ok then open terminal
    Code:
    cd ~/Downloads
    then
    Code:
    mkdir kernel
    then download these three files

    http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa...12035_i386.deb


    http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa...012035_all.deb



    http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa...12035_i386.deb




    back to terminal

    Code:
    cd ~/Downloads
    copy the three files into the dir that you made
    Code:
    cp linux-* ~/Downloads/kernel/
    then cd in kernel

    Code:
    cd ~/Downloads/kernel/
    now do a
    Code:
    ls
    Do you see the 3 files in there ? this is important all 3 have to be in there. after you see that they are in there time to build

    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i *.deb

    then
    Code:
    sudo update-grub
    then

    Code:
    sudo reboot

    Now boot into your 3.2 r4 kernel

    then open terminal

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source b43-fwcutter firmware-b43-installer

    then

    Code:
    sudo reboot
    boot into 3,2 r4

    ddo you have wireless ?

    Re: Ubuntu on mac No Network adapters

    Just a side note here, though I'm not extremely familiar with wireless (never had issues before).

    I assume you're using Ubuntu 10.04.4 which came out a few days ago. This version has backported wireless drivers from Linux 3.x, so if your wireless isn't working right now then I doubt installing a new kernel would help much. Just thought I'd provide that bit of info just in case.

    ummm. try this I dont get the error to do with PHY. I will also google.
    b43: probe of bcma0:0 failed with error -95

    Code:
    sudo rmmod b43
    then
    Code:
    sudo modprobe b43
    if not
    Code:
    sudo rmmod b43
    then reboot
    then
    Code:
    sudo modprobe b43

    arghh
    alight I wrote a script called lastchance if this wont work then I am out of ideas
    open terminal
    Code:
    gedit ~/lastchance
    then paste this into your text editor (gedit)
    Code:
    #!/usr/bin/env bash 
    ##
    ##   This script will install the b43 modual to you computer 
    ##   This is only for Kernels that are 3.2 and up

    cd b43-fwcutter-015
    make
    sudo make install
    cd ..
    export FIRMWARE_INSTALL_DIR="/lib/firmware"

    cd ..
    sudo rm -r sandbox
    clear
    notify-send "Your Install Is Done Please Reboot"

    then save and go back to the termianl
    Code:
    cd ~/
    then
    Code:
    chmod +x lastchance
    then
    Code:
    ./lastchance
    then reboot

    if this does not work then I have no clue and everythign that I read here http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/b43 is wrong (which I know that that is not the case)

    any ho good luck

    Re: Ubuntu on mac No Network adapters

    Thanks for the help guys. I never got 10.04 up and running on my mac successfully with wifi adaptors. However I did give 12.04lts a try a few days ago and I am pleased to say that everything works fine. Didn't mean to give this a bump but i thought I thought i would share for future searchers what I have found and that is 12.04 works perfect with 2010 MBPs
