Please Help! ubuntu wont recognise my wifi card


Hello,
im new to this website and im new to linux in general so please excuse my probably mind numbing stupid question. Me and my girlfriend basically bought a Hp Pavilion dv2 netbook, as we are planning to travel at the end of the month. We have an Android phone and atm we are connecting to the net through a usb wire, because i cannot get the wifi to work on the newly installed ubuntu, i would much like to stick with it but it is going to be impossible unless i can get it to recognise the wifi card... it works fine when running windows. can anybody help please?!?

Thanks very much, Tat

Have you checked if the "Additional Drivers" program offers you to install a driver for this device?
If not, we need more information, primarily which wireless device the laptop is using, please post the output of the command
Code:
lspci
launched in a terminal.
