Ubuntu doesn't see wireless connection on Laptop


I've got an Asus G50 and when I try to connect it wirelessly there's no connection setup. I try to setup one and I get nothing. It will connect wired though.

So how do I get it to see my wireless router?

Here's the page with my laptop's stats

You should start up by telling what Ubuntu version are you using. And also put up the output for lspci -vv and iwconfig commands so that it tells if your wireless card has been detected or not.
If it is not then you will need proper drivers for it. Else it should not be too hard to connect to wireless point.

after installing some updates and restarting it finally seems to work fine. I think I just needed to restart though.
