I have a Mac book pro 7,1 and triple booted it by (OSX10.6,Windows7,Ubuntu12.10) every 3 OS boots normally and everything is ok. Just Ubuntu does not recognize my Wireless

According to this I should have something under Additional Drivers, but the box is empty.

I used the lspci command or lsusb command on terminal no wireless (broadcom) driver shows up.
