I have an Acer Aspire V5-121, which was running Kubuntu 13.04. I recently repartitioned and installed the latest 64 bit Crunchbang linux on it. On booting up after installation, I noticed that I couldnt connect to my Wifi network. I setup the network connection as a new connection, inputting details of the network, as was setup on Ubuntu. However, I get no network connection.
I believe the kernel does not recognize my network card. I would appreciate any help setting up Wifi on the netbook. The distro is very fast, bootup is unbelievably quick. If only I could setup network on it, I could finally use it as my main OS.
The wifi card is a Broadcom 802.11n.

execute the following commands which wil determine your machine WNIC , and paste the output into a 'Code' tag please :
~$ uname -a ~$ lspci -nn | grep Network ~$ nm-tool ~$ lsmod ~$ rfkill list all
# sudo apt-get install rfkill , if it's not installed.

^Shouldn't all code go in code tags?
