    You need the broadcom wl driver. Ubuntu's Driver Manager should be able to install it for you or do
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-module
    This assumes you have a wired connection. If not, post back and we'll help you download the necessary packages and transfer them to your machine.
