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

You may not need last one, then reboot.
