I think I'm missing something here. You posted that a Linux Mint live CD/DVD works so why can you not post from that?
Getting Ubuntu to work will be a long task and you can look at the link I sent you and grab the files it mentions using your Mac and move them to your Ubuntu machine using a USB stick.

The Driver for the broadcom wireless card is included in the Ubuntu install ISO. But it is not put in your computer during installation by default due to its proprietary license. At this point you need to connect your laptop to the router through a wire and download the driver from the Ubuntu repository.

If you don't have an Ethernet cable I am sure somebody in your circle of friends of family will have one, just connect the machine with the wire and run the additional drivers tool in Ubuntu and that will install the missing driver.

To run the additional drivers tool in Ubuntu just do a search in the Ubuntu search bar by typing "Additioanl Drivers' and run the application.

I wouldn't put my email or phone number in an open forum...
How do I get the results of (inxi -F) from my Acer One to the internet for this forum?
I have loaded LinuxMint 17 and still no internet. My Acer One has a physical switch for the internet connection. Using it does not work with LinuxMint also. I have tried to edit connections and I cannot find my MAC address for the Acer One.

One way you could do it - long detailed explanation follows...
1. Take a USB stick (any size) and plug it into your PC.
2. You should see a icon of a USB device on your desktop.
3. In a terminal window execute the following command:-
Code:
inxi -F > ~/inxi-output.txt
you won't see any output.
4. Transfer or copy the file inxi-output.txt to the USB stick.
5. You can do this with the Mint file manager (nemo) by CTRL+C(copy) and CTRL+V(paste) from your home directory to the USB stick.
6. Take the USB stick to a fully working PC & send the contents of inxi-output.txt to this forum...
