I'm having some trouble with my Dell Vostro 1510. I installed wubi on it two days ago and I've only been able to use the Internet with an ethernet cable. The network seems to definitely recognize that the wireless--even other peoples' wireless--is there, but it can't manage to get on. I'll post the lpsci here, so that you can see the Broadcom card I'm working with. I have downloaded the kernel 2.6.39-0-generic, which doesn't appear to have done a lick of work.

06:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY (rev 01)

For the BCM4313 controller it's possible to blacklist the acer_wmi module and after that it works perfectly. So maybe this will work for yours as well.

Edit

/etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

and add

blacklist acer_wmi
