If your wifi card doesn't have support on Linux yet, you have to download ndiswrapper it'll get your wifi working fine ( my wifi device doesn't have support on linux but with ndiswrapper it works better than on windows ). There is a script that helps you with ndiswrapper, it gets from web the appropriate device driver and install it, but right now I don't remember where you can find it, maybe google helps you.
But if you have the driver for windows, you just have to do this:
#apt-get install ndiswrapper ( I don't know how ndiswrapper package is called on ubuntu, then go to the directory that is the driver for windows and run: )
#ndiswrapper -i "DriverName"
#modprobe ndiswrapper ( it gets the module working )
#iwconfig wlan0 essid "YourAcessPointName" ( if you don't know the essid you can search for it using "iwlist wlan0 s" then it will show you the networks available )
#dhcpcd wlan0 ( hey, I don't know if ubuntu has dhcpcd by default, but if doesn't, i encourage you to download it, this is the best dhcp client for linux )
If the dhcp is enabled, your connection should works!
