I don't use Ubuntu but run the command ' /sbin/lspci -v ' to see the hardware info on the nic itself. Better info usually. From there google for the info it provides to find out which module it may require. Or look through the HCL section here at the top and to the right. Lots of hardware in there. Now if not much luck then go with ndiswrapper and use the windows inf driver from the card. Using the Search Tool here search here for Ubuntu and ndiswrapper to see what it takes to get it working. Several good post but you may have to search several pages deep to get a good detail of the setup.

There'll be an entry in the GNOME menu called Terminal.
