finding linux backports .deb files

I need to find a .deb file called linux-backports-modules-jaunty so that i can get wireless operating on my eeepc since i cant download and install it using the command sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-jaunty since niether ethernet or wireless works. I am reliably informed that this will sort out the wireless issue at least.

Does anybody know where i can find this. Any help is much apreciated.
