I recently burned the Ubuntu 12.04 iso onto a blank DVD and used that to install Ubuntu onto my Lenovo g500. I can see wireless networks after the drivers for my BCM4313 were installed, but I cannot connect to any of them. Also, my ethernet connection has not been recognized. I was able to connect to the internet when I boot to windows 8. I have been trying to fix it for hours, transferring what I assume are drivers from other threads to no avail. I would really appreciate some personalized help.

Thanks, Andrew

at least you are farther ahead than me. I'm trying to boot from a ubuntu CD on my G500. But when I hit Fn + F12, there is no option for booting from DVD drive. UEFI is so different. So how did you get the laptop to boot up in the first place? – user172017 Jul 2 '13 at 14:19
@user172017 I recommend posting a new question to get help with this. – Eliah Kagan Sep 6 '13 at 7:54
