Please go to System > Administration > Hardware Drivers, and attach a screenshot if there is anything related to your wireless card there. I believe that this is not a bug, and can be fixed very easily.

Try to do this:

- $wget (Download it from another PC)
- $tar xjvf broadcom-wl-
- $sudo b43-fwcutter -w /lib/firmware broadcom-wl-
