Will Ubuntu ever support the Acer Aspire-R7? It uses a custom Broadcom chipset. I even tried using an external USB 'EnGenius Wireless N', but the driver crashes. I give up at this point. I don't have an ethernet port and don't want to switch to another Linux distribution. Does the Beta support this chipset or is Ubuntu and Acer R7 a deadend?
Actually I really don't know what is your pc's properties. But my laptop has Broadcom wifi adapter. When I installed ubuntu my wifi card wasn't working, i connect it to internet with an ethernet cable than let it to install additional devices which Broadcom listed in it. After installation it works like a charm. If not, you can manually install broadcom-sta-drivers to make it work.
Have a nice day..
