    On my 1501 I had to use NDISWrapper to install the Windows driver, because the driver that came with Ubuntu just wouldn't work. I'd recommend going that route.

    Here's the how-to that I used. Just make sure that the broadcom wireless in your laptop is the same chipset as that in the 1501. If so, then this should work:

    I'm in the same boat, same specs, except that my card is a BCM4401 . . . I've downloaded the XP driver, but I'm wary about using Ndiswrapper because I've never needed it before now . . . this is a friend's machine, and I don't want to make a ton of redundant changes.
    Any thoughts? Do I need Ndiswrapper? Should I try FWCutter?
