The MacBooks generally ship with the Broadcom 43xx series of wireless
adapters. In my experience, most of the time manual firmware installation
is required to get WiFi working.
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MacBookPro9-2/Quantal has instructions
for getting the WiFi working on Ubuntu 12.04. However, the instructions
should still work for later versions of Ubuntu. There are no guarantees,
however, that this will work. The good news is that may not have to
download an image again, since you already seem to have the DVDs downloaded.
