Ubuntu linux 10.10 Wireless problem on S10-3S

Hi!


I just installed Ubuntu linux on my S10-3S.
Everything seems to be working fine exept for the "fn + F5" combo and the wireless nettwork card,

When I turn the switch for wireless on the right side of the laptop the bluetooth enables but the wlan card does not.
I installed a "Restricted Driver", the broadcom STA driver, (seems to be the BCM4313 card)
Tried a xp driver and after this i can finaly see the wlan option on the network utility in ubuntu, but I can't seem to enable it.
run iwconfig, then i get that all wireless has no extention.

try ifconfig wlan0 up. but no can do

 

any hints.

Btw, i removed the windows 7 starter image from the computer because lets face it Win7 Starter is useless, cant even change background. i'ts like byeing a school or work computer and not getting a admin user.
