Wireless is tricky.  Could you send the make, model number, and revision of
your card? I can take a look for you.

For the Nvidia you should see an icon in the upper right courner for
restricted drivers.  Open it and it will ask you if you want the nvidia
drivers installed.   For me that was also how I installed my wifi drivers.
