Installing a wifi driver on ubuntu

I am trying to setup ubuntu wifi on a laptop that has an internal Broadcom Corporation BCM4306 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Controller card.    It appears that the driver I am supposed to use is:  bcmwl5.inf

  On ubuntu  I opened:  System -> Administration -> Wireless Network Drivers

Then I clicked on bcmwl5.inf

The result is "Invalid Driver!"    I do not have any original CD's to go along with this driver.  

Where can I find this driver?  Or how can I make this work?  Pls help.
