Unhappy Toshiba Satellite A200 - Ubuntu - WiFi not working

I've got a TOSHIBA A200 1M4 laptop. WiFi works perfectly well on Vista but it doesn't work at all on Ubuntu (7.04).
iwconfig says there are no wireless extensions, and several manuals I've found while googling for it did not help me.
What can I do to get WiFi working?

What wlan chip has it? lsusb will let you know.

If it is a Broadcom 43xxx, then use ndiswrapper and a XP driver.

Best regards
