Ubuntu Wifi Problems

I just installed ubuntu on a 50 GB partition, and I can't seem to connect it to the internet. The Wifi connections menu wouldn't pick up any connections. I just formatted and reinstalled windows 7, and reinstalled all of my drivers.

I've never used Ubuntu before, so please don't tell me to do anything complicated, and thanks!

Wifi card

What wifi card do you have?

In Ubuntu, open a terminal and type: lspci
(-or if the card is USB type: lsusb)

What appears on the line(s): Network Controller ?

hardware drivers

I had to install my wireless card via hardware drivers in order for it to work.

Goto Administrator>Hardware Drivers and see if any drivers come up for your wireless card. If so, pick one and install it, them make sure your wireless card is active.
