I dual booted ubuntu with my macbookpro. When I installed the os it worked fine and the only problem is that i can't connect to wireless. It works fine if i hard wire it but i can't get the right firmware for it. I tired going to system settings and then hardware drivers but it doesn't show up. I have been trying to look around for answers but can't see to get anything to work. Please help me out with solutions. Thanks

Try packages listed here:


b43-fwcutter linux-firmware (probably already installed) linux-firmware-nonfree firmware-b43-lpphy-installer

You may not need last one, then reboot.
