    Wireless Firmware missing...?

    Everything works except for the wireless connection.

    I've heard to type in these codes and this is what it gives with each.

    Code:
    cat /etc/lsb-release

    DISTRIB_RELEASE=12.04
    DISTRIB_CODENAME=precise
    DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS"
