I spent the last several days trying to figure this out, only finding results for the MacBook Pro 8,X model series.
- No wireless connectivity
ifconfigshows only eth0 (wired ethernet) interface
I finally found the solution here, although it too is posted for working for the MacBook Pro 8,2 series.
Then install the linux-backports-modules-cw-3.2-oneiric-generic or, if you have the pae kernel installed, the linux-backports-modules-cw-3.2-oneiric-generic-pae package.
Edit the /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf and add the line:
Create or edit the file /etc/pm/config.d/modules and make sure the wireless modules (b43 and bcma) are blacklisted:
Reboot and the wireless should work.
