Installing ndiswrapper on Kubuntu 11.04 to Broadcom BCM318

I have made the switch on my other laptop from win7 to kubuntu 11.04 which the internet currently does not work on. I am on my other laptop and have tried to install ndis wrapper from a USB drive to the laptop with kubuntu.
I have been reading the guides to install the repositories for ndiswrapper but still can't do it. Any help is appreciated, thank you

Can you connect to the internet using the ethernet port?

What are you using to install ndiswrapper?

Yes I have been using my ethernet to install ndiswrapper. I have gotten the driver and installed it but don't know what to do next, or how to enable it. Here are my current configs:

lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.

diswrapper -l
WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist, it will be ignored in a future release.
bcmwl5 : driver installed
device (14E4:4319) present (alternate driver: ssb)


06:02.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce 54g] 802.11a/b/g PCI Express Transceiver (rev 02)

06:06.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10)

wlan0: command not found

I am pretty lost as what to do know, I have added my info to wireless tab on network interfaces but I don't know whether or not my wireless is enabled..
