Kubuntu 10.4 is not connecting to wireless network on Thinkpad T43


Hello.I have run in to a small problem.I'm using three different UNIX OS's.I have used gnome on my laptop for most of the time I have had it and I decided it was time for a change in GUI,I am wanting to use KDE but I can't get it to work with my laptop I have tried mandriva 2010.1 spring and that one was slow and it kept dropping my wireless connection.So I got rid of that in tried Kubuntu and now it will not use the wireless.Ubuntu and Ubuntu SE and the live version of super gamer can all connect it's just Kubuntu and mandriva
if you need any more info please let me know.
thank you for taking the time to read this.

You could just install the kubuntu-desktop package in your ubuntu install and then choose between KDE and GNOME from the GDM login.
