I finally found a tutorial that did work, but there was one step that was hanging me up.

*****I'm stealing the steps, slightly modified from https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/bcm43xx/Feisty_No-Fluff#Introduction
I'm emailing those guys to let them know. I'm hoping to ease the pain of others with this laptop that are going to Ubuntu.
Open a terminal and copy/paste each one of these commands. After you have successfully accomplished all commands, pull the ethernet cord, restart, and you should (hopefully) be golden.
