    First look to see if Kubuntu has a driver for it to automatically install. Go to this, in the main menu.

    System --> Hardware Drivers Manager

    If there is a wireless driver available, click on the enable check box for it to download and install it. It may not have the same name as your wireless, but use it anyway. You need a wired internet connection for this to work.
