I've installed Ubuntu 12.10 on my Macbook Pro 4,1, following these steps (MacBookPro_Penryn:Installing the Broadcom Wireless Driver on help.ubuntu.com) to get the wifi working, but while the System Prefpanel says it's already working, the wifi network doesn't appear on the Networks panel. I don't know what else to do.

I've found what the proper driver is, but don't understand the read me file. Any help? broadcom.com/docs/linux_sta/README.txt –  rafacampoamor Feb 13 '13 at 17:45
What is the model of your wireless receptor device? –  Lucio Feb 13 '13 at 18:08
Per user nbm: Can you post the results of iwconfig and sudo lshw -C network? Without personal info if you prefer. –  Seth Feb 14 '13 at 3:52
