It's best to tell us what the specific issue is....
I don't know anything about the Ubuntu methods and tools, but I like to use WICD (regardless of distro).
You don't say if the basic device is working. Open a terminal and enter "sudo iwconfig" If it says "no wireless extensions" on all the devices, then you will need to install a driver. For that, we'll need to know what your wireless card is.
