[Xubuntu 6.10] wifi not detected after boot

I installed Xubuntu 6.10 & during installation my wifi was detected
correctly. But now as I boot off the new system there is no wifi.

Here's my ifconcig output:

ïfconfig -a

eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:02:8F:F3:7A:5B

TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0

cat /etc/network/interfaces


# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

# The loopback network interface

# The primary network interface

I had a look at the dmesg and the wireless device is not shown.

Any help would be appreciated.
