o i tried what this link said:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=297092

It went all right but then when i ran this i got the following error:
root@philip-laptop:/home/philip/Desktop/test/DRIVER_US# sudo iwlist scanning
lo Interface doesn't support scanning.

eth0 Interface doesn't support scanning.

I tried restarting and it still doesnt work???

So i ran this:
philip@philip-laptop:~/Desktop/test/DRIVER_ROW$ sudo ndiswrapper -l
bcmwl6 : driver installed
device (14E4:432B) present

And then i ran this:
philip@philip-laptop:~/Desktop/test/DRIVER_ROW$ iwconfig
lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.



so still doesnt work. Any ideas?
