Nice you got an XPS.

Can you tell what does lspci | grep -i ethernet or lscpi | grep -i wireless gives.... I am betting its another Broadcom chip. But anyway... the simplest way is to use the built-in driver installer in the repository (this is if you are using Hardy btw).

sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter

Just follow the prompts.

Good luck.

Hardwire and update Ubuntu, that fixed my problem. The kernel that came with the Live CD didnt work with the wireless, after the update it worked fine.
