Ok, now you need to follow the instructions given in https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Device/Broadcom_BCM4311_Natty_11.04?highlight=%28ManufacturerModel%29 down to the reboot. Note you will need the wired connection to install the firmware. Also ensure your wireless is turned on with the toggle switch/key.
