I've managed to successfully dual-boot Windows 7 and Ubuntu 9.10 on my laptop; problem is, I can't use my dorm's wireless internet.
Before successfully installing Ubuntu 9.10, I was alerted that there were proprietary drivers that I had to activate. These were my built-in Broadcom WLAN card, and my Nvidia GPU. After reading through some forums, I found out that to get these to work, I had to have access to a WIRED internet connection as well. The problem is, my dorm being as strict as it is (we can't even download exe's, thus the switch to Ubuntu), I can't use a LAN cable to activate my drivers.
Is there a way for me to run a program off of my drive to install these drivers without an internet connection?
