Forgive my noob-ignorance, but I tried doing the research before asking here.
I've installed Ubuntu 16.04 on an original MacBook Air and I didn't see any networks in the WiFi dropdown even though wireless seems to be on.
I don't have a wired connection, so I have to download drivers on another computer and install them manually.
I looked up my wireless card and it says that it is a Broadcom with a PCI.ID of 14e4:4328 (rev 05). Then I looked up the driver in the table and it said that I needed to use "firmware-b43-installer". In another thread, I found out that, for Ubuntu 16.04, I needed to use b43-fwcutter_019-2_amd64.deb to install the driver in broadcom-wl-5.100.138.tar.bz2.
When I install this and reboot, I still don't see any WiFi networks showing up.
Is there something else that I need to do? What other info do you need?
[EDIT] Here is the output of
