[SOLVED] [Solved] Wireless bricked on my system

The open source driver on my system sucked ass (comparable to speeding and then hitting a wall, it will run super fast and then hit packet loss), so I decided to blacklist it and install NDISWrapper like I've done with previous versions of Ubuntu since I've had better luck with it's Windows driver, but now I can't even get the option to use wireless or connect to a wireless network. Can somebody tell what got screwed up? I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 (laugh it up). So far what I've done in this order is:

Installed NDISWrapper
watched my system go trollface on me after restarting (there isn't even a checkbox for enable wireless)
Looked up that the open source driver may be conflicting with it and punched in a command line (see below)
Rebooted and still saw bricked WTF?

After that I tried removing NDISWrapper, but that accomplished nothing and in the end just reinstalled it

Blacklist command:

echo -e "blacklist bcm43xx\nblacklist b43\nblacklist b43legacy\nblacklist ssb" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist

Oh wait.

Did some fiddling around and for some strange reason it wouldn't work with the 32 bit drivers and instead wanted the 64 bit ones. Weird because installing said 64 bit Windows drivers on previous Ubuntu releases would usually lock the whole system as soon as I get a connection.

Oh wait.
