I have been trying to get my wireless card (built in) working, its a broadcom 1390, following the directions on the different walkthroughs. I havent figured out what the problem is until a few minutes ago when I tried to start from the beginning, and read everything that it showed in response to the "sudo apt-get update" command. Not realizing this before, it is trying to go online to get these updates, but I have no internet connection at all. How do I get these updates without an internet connection?is there a way I can get these updates on the HD and trick the computer into thinking it updated them?

Any help will be greatly appreciated...This is the ubuntu feisty version...

Ok, got part of my problem solved...I was able to connect via wired network to do the update I needed, now the problem is when I do the install linux-headers. It tells me it cant find the headers? Can someone possibly point me in the right direction for this? thanks in advance
