Hello and Welcome.
Have you seen this thread? Maybe it'll give you some ideas to look at. I know it's for Fedora but the concepts are the same.

- I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
The Live/Install CD/DVD of Ubuntu supports a lot of proprietary WiFi devices, but after installation you need to install the drivers manually. Try connecting to a wired network and going to the System->Administration->Hardware Drivers page to get the driver/firmware you need for your wireless device. FWIW, you may not need the wired connection, but I'm not 100% sure of that...Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
