Wireless on HP dv8 is not working on Ubuntu 14Lts


I have a hp pavilion dv8000 and just recently dual-booted the computer to run windows 7 and Ubuntu. I am having issues with the wireless adapter and when going on to software and updates it says that the Broadcom Corporation: Broadcom 802.11b/gWLAN is not working. This is my first time using Ubuntu.(The version i have is the is 14 LTS) I also can't get through with the ethernet cable as well so I have no other means to connect to the Internet. I tried uninstalling the driver but it keeps saying that there is no such file. I don't know what else to try to get the wireless to work. Please help. Thanks
