SoI have been trying Ubuntu but it won't recognize the broadcom wireless card on my mobo. there are some broadcom divers under the drivers section in settings, but, as I cant download them I got them off their website with Windows. But I can't figure out how to install it for the life of me (after having looked a various other posts). So could someone please give me a step by step guide?

Edit: So before I give the results I should say that am temporarily hooked up a wired connection to get ubuntu installed, though I am getting an error whenever I try to install the driver (from additional drivers). here are the results;

    lspci | grep -i network:

Could you edit your question and add the output of lspci | grep -i network, lsusb, dmesg? –  Braiam Aug 27 '13 at 20:03
