There is no official support yet in Ubuntu 11.10, but you can get it working with the following repository:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mpodroid/mactel
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter firmware-b43-installer
Then install the linux-backports-modules-cw-3.2-oneiric-generic or, if you have the pae kernel installed, the linux-backports-modules-cw-3.2-oneiric-generic-pae package. While this tutorial deals with Oneiric, the same instructions for the wireless work for Precise, with the above installation of "linux-backports-modules-cw-3.2-oneiric-generic" replaced with "linux-backports-modules-cw-3.3-precise-generic".
Edit the /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf and add the line:
Create or edit the file /etc/pm/config.d/modules and make sure the wireless modules (b43 and bcma) are blacklisted:
Reboot and the wireless should work.
