I figured it out. You have to disable your PCI LAN card in your BIOS. I saw something while booting about some ID already in use, so I was like hmmmm. Disabled the PCI LAN card in the BIOS and now the wireless works perfectly. I guess it gets the hardware mixed up when WLAN and LAN card are both activated.

Figured it out while bored in a Biology lecture. I'm posting from Ubuntu right now via a wireless network.
