I did the research on the internet and found that emachine 627 have Atheros Wireless LAN Card so I don't know what does broadcom has to do with us
u didn't tell us what is the name and version of your distribution
I suggest upgrading your distribution to a version that was made after 2009 or 2010 to be sure that the driver is included
I have packard bell with atheros wireless lan driver too and is working well with crunchbang
good luck

By "Ultimate Edition," I assume you mean Ubuntu Ultimate Edition.

lspci reports the chipset on the card, not the brand of the card. It's entirely possible that the Atheros card uses a Broadcom chip.

The Broadcom drivers are in the Ubuntu repos. Enable the proprietary drivers for devices (restricted) repositories in your package manager. Also, in the control center thingee, there might be an item for for "Additional Drivers." You could look for that.
