Lenovo Wireless Ubuntu


Hey I recently installed ubuntu and I can't get my wireless connection to work.
I'm using Ubuntu Feisty Fawn on my Lenovo 3000 C200 8922-28s.
I've read about installing the wireless card but I can't get it to work.
I can see the icon on top and when I try to connect to a wireless network it just takes some time to say that I got connected to a wired network (I'm using this connection to download the drivers and stuff).
My 'lspci' says:

03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini-PCI Card (rev 01)

but my 'dmesg' says:

You need to use the bcm43xx-fwcutter program. It extracts the microcode from a windows driver.

The README file installed with the package has links to the drivers you want for different wireless devices.
