(edit: whoops, I spoke too soon. This fixes a problem you don't have [yet]. sorry 'bout that.).

The debian (and so I believe the ubuntu) dhcp client overwrites /etc/resolv.conf. You need to tell dhcp you want to try different ones, put a line like
Code:
prepend domain-name-servers 8.8.8.8,8.8.4.4
in /etc/dhcp/dhclient.conf. man 5 dhclient.conf for alllllll the gory details.

I've been using the Linux defaults with the exception of using the synaptic program manager to add the bcmw kernel package. When I did that, my wireless was recognized and connected, I just keep getting the server not found error in firefox and dns error in chrome

Are you using networkmanager or wicd for your connection?
Configure them to use dhcp.
Just use the same settings as for the wired connection.

Kind regards
