    Need help setting up wifi and removing W7.

    Hello, I just installed Ubuntu 12.10 with the windows installer. I'm a complete linux nub. (Just found how to get to the terminal.) I've been searching the forums for other posts like mine and been having trouble following them so I'd figure I'd get some specific help. I have a Dell Inspiron 1525. I think my wifi card is a Broadcom 802.11 (BCM4312 802.11b/gLP-PHY. What do I need to do?

    Also I have Windows 7 on the laptop and I would like to remove it. Could you please give me instructions on how to do so. Would this make the computer faster and Ubuntu faster by removing it?

    When I log in with Ubuntu it will say the old owners name of the laptop from the Windows 7 OS. Also how could I change that?

    Sorry for all the questions. Thank you so much for reading.
