I am as good as a beginner in Linux, and I'm sure I need to install the wireless driver for the Macbook's wireless card to pick up the wireless network.

I just don't know how.

Thanks in advance! :)

Can you connect to a wireless network without the drivers? Sometimes it works by default. – Seth Dec 25 '12 at 2:32

You must install Ubuntu properly or you have Windows 7. It won't work with Windows 7. If you didn't install properly then click here

OP states they are using Macbook Pro (Late 2011), not Windows 7, so not sure how your reference to Windows 7 is applicable. – Mark Mikofski Jan 3 '13 at 20:54
OP has already installed Ubuntu on their mac, so installation is not the issue. The OP is trying to use wireless. There is no reference to wifi in the post you provide, so it doesn't seem appropriate. However this post may help. – Mark Mikofski Jan 3 '13 at 21:01
