First time user - wireless connection not working


Okay so I am a total newb to linux. I installed Ubuntu using Wubi and am trying to figure out how to get my wireless connection working. It occurred to me I may not have the right driver for use with Ubuntu for the wireless connection at my house. I couldn't find anything on the web to help..it appears I have a realtek RTL8102E wireless card in my laptop. I have absolutely no idea how to resolve this situation..I've looked on the web, but everythings pretty confusing. If I could get the wireless working it would be a good first step...thanks in advance!

The 5th post on there gives pretty good advice.

I still have not received a reply from Realtek support. I really need to get this working as soon as possible. If anyone could point me in the right direction to remedy this myself so I don't keep waiting for an email that may never come, I would greatly appreciate it.
