Wireless Card not working on 7.04 live CD

Hi, I was trying out Feisty on my laptop, the main reason to make sure the wireless support will work with my university's WIFI system (they have it paranoid secure). When I loaded the CD, it was unable to load a service that was called something along the lines of bcm43xx. I couldn't get the exact name as it only lasted on the screen for a couple of moments. I helped out a friend w/ his WIFI card earlier this summer and we used that driver for it. I did the CD check, and it came up fine.

My WIFI card is "Dell Wireless 1370 WLAN Mini-PCI Card"

Any ideas what I can do?
