Is there a .deb that I can download from another computer and transfer over USB to get Surface Pro WiFi working? I'd rather not tinker with modprobe, and I don't have a USB Internet adapter.

What kind of wifi adapter does it have? Run lspci -nn and paste in in your post. –  grimpitch May 22 '13 at 3:52
might help to mention which version of ubuntu you are using as well –  Journeyman Geek May 22 '13 at 3:55
13.04, or 12.04. –  mcandre May 23 '13 at 1:13
You should probably follow bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1165938 for updates on when, if ever, this configuration could be supported through a standard package install. –  user175620 Jul 16 '13 at 10:30
