    Macbook (1st gen) Wireless not working

    i cant get my wireless to work i did that other driver installation and it didnt do anything in my connections it only shows (wired connection and point to point) i use my airport to connect to internet so i dont have wire. I go to System > Administration > Windows Wireless Drivers > I see the bcmwl5 driver and it says "Hardware Present: No". I can't see anything wireless in my network settings either.
    Help! please and thanx in advance

    !st gen Macbooks don't have a bradcom-based wifi card, so that is not the right driver. You need madwifi.
