Connected but without TDE

By installing something like Ubuntu 14.04 I can easily have a wifi
connection and even install some Trinity apps.  This is by using the
most recent repos (Raring, 13.04) as instructed in
 However, when the core TDE packages are selected (using Synaptic),
they appear as broken - missing several dependencies.

OTOH, if I try to use Ubuntu 13.04, with which I hope the Raring repos
are compatible, then I can't get a wifi connection - my machine
(Lenovo Thinkpad T440s) is too recent, and I have already gone thru
the hassle of installing firmware, drivers, etc. to no avail.  It's
the same problem with Exe Gnu/Linux or a live CD Image for Ubuntu with
Trinity preinstalled.

Any ideas?  For now I can use Windows or a distro without TDE.  Also I
think of selling the Thinkpad and using a less demanding (and
expensive) machine.
