I did it. After hours and hours of leafing through google search after google search and you all helping me through this, I have internet connectivity. What finally did it for me was this link: help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/bcm43xx it just works! Thanks for all your help!

I'll be alright downloading the packages and their dependencies from this computer (Windows 7). I successfully installed the b43-fwcutter, but now I'm having trouble installing the firmware package. It sent me to a website saying that there was a newer version to install and when I went to it it downloaded a .tar file for me. What is this and how do I install it?

I tried to install the firmware package but it says that it doesn't exist. E: Unable to locate package firmware-b43-installer. Same thing with b43-fwcutter. What next?

I'm not connected at all. My router doesn't show up in settings and I don't have an Ethernet cable to establish a wired connection. My wireless router has a WEP password setup. The connection was automatically done for me in Vista, I didn't have to configure anything manually. I went to "Additional Drivers" and the message it gave me was "Downloading package indexes failed, please check your network status. Most drivers will not be available." I clicked close and then a window opened that said "No proprietary drivers are in use on this system." Thanks for your help in this matter!

I don't have an Ethernet cable so I can't establish the wired connection, but thank you for replying!
