    Default Wireless on a macbook pro

    I just recently picked up a '13 MBP and am fighting trying to get a dual boot setup running. One thing I did find though is an article here:
    xX_Spiidey_Xx's BT4 Tuts: Installing Back|Track 4 Final On Mac Computers
    In there it says that they have not found a way to get wireless working on a mbp. I booted strictly into the live disk and messed around with it for a while but did not find anything. Has anyone successfully gotten wireless working in BT4 final on a mbp? If so is it working well or does it still lacking?

    Most of the newer Macs use Broadcum based cards, which have limited to no support in linux. USB wifi is the best way to go.

    Thanks Barry! I'll probably head out later and pick up a new usb wifi setup.
