    You need to reinstall the drivers, try looking in "Systeem -> Beheer -> Hardwire Drivers" (not sure, I don't use Ubuntu anymore).

    Trying to remember the most of ubuntu from mind... you may have to check that the wireless card is installed. You should see a wireless sign on the top of the screen.

    You're gonna have to download the drivers again, but... that shouldn't happen.

    Check to see if there are any underlying problems.

    You use the utility that the first reply mentioned. There's a program to download the drivers, built-in to Ubuntu. Something like "Hardware Drivers" or "Additional Drivers" or something.
