Question Wireless lan on ubuntu


I have a problem - i dont know how to add my wireless network-card to the hardware list in ubuntu. The installation program has not discovered the wlan card itself, so i have to do it manually. I would be glad if someone in here could help me telling me how to do it, because i have to use it almost everyday, and if i cant get it working, i cant use ubuntu in my work.
