I just put Ubuntu on my MacbookPro4,1, but I can't find or connect to any wireless networks. I've tried installing drivers from System -> Administration -> Hardware Drivers, as well as manually patching (per this site).

All my hardware is standard, what came with the machine.

After some trouble with Flash Player, I think I'm just going to reinstall 32-bit and try again, since I was trying be cool and go 64. I can't seem to delete it, sorry for the hassle :/ – paul.meier Sep 17 '10 at 1:15
You might look at my similar question about wireless problems -… - Using the information I got back from the command line, I was able to determine that there is a general problem with my wireless card and when I googled for my actual wireless card, I found several walk-throughs on how to fix them. – Noah Goodrich Sep 17 '10 at 16:14

If you want to delete Ubuntu 64bit, just start from the live CD and open GParted from system-administration. Of-cause you should backup your home folder. It is possible that your wireless card is only supported in 32bit.
