I was trying to install the b43 drivers, but I couldn't because the module wl was not found. I am using Ubuntu 12.10. I know this is not much information so ask me to enter any commands in the terminal if needed.

Well, you could start by explaining how you tried to install the drivers. – user98085 Jan 18 '13 at 23:27
Please edit your question to add the result of this terminal command: lspci -nn | grep 0280. Either b43 OR wl is correct for your device and they are not interchangeable. – chili555 Jan 19 '13 at 1:49
