    Wireless Firmware missing?

    I have a Latitude D610 computer. I just downloaded Ubuntu a few days ago, and it works great except for the fact that I can't connect to wireless. Anyone help????
    It keeps telling me "firmware missing."

    If you have a wired connection do this

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-installer
