If it is a realtek 8188cus, this page has step by step instructions on installing the drivers: http://www.r-statistics.com/2011/11/...-ubuntu-11-10/

I used the image mentioned earlier and put it on a 4GB SD card. After the first boot to ubuntu I followed the instructions here:
http://rhombus-tech.net/allwinner_a1..._ubuntu_image/
and executed 'depmod -a' and rebooted.
On reboot the wireless worked fine and connected. But I still couldn't access the internet unless I was root. I found this page:
https://blog.tuinslak.org/socket-permission-denied
Looks like the image we are using was built with CONFIG_ANDROID_PARANOID_NETWORK set.
I created the aid_inet group and added myself. Now the internet works fine for me.

Are you logged in as root? you may have to follow the page he links about the permission denied error to get wifi working as a non-root user.

Ok, so instead of unplugging the power and plugging back in I actually went to the top right and selected to restart and the wireless is now working. Thanks ebina1!

I don't have a usb to bluetooth adapter so I don't know. I just plugged a hub with keyboard and mouse into the one USB port.

I think I screwed something up while trying to get Bluetooth to work. Now I don't even have the Bluetooth application in ubuntu. I purged the 'bluez' (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1812493) (bottom of page) and since then I lost all Bluetooth functionality. Any ideas on how to get it back?

What error do you get when you try to reinstall it?

I didn't get an error, I reinstalled 'bluez' with no issues, but I no longer have any Bluetooth options.
