Wireless internet help on Dell Inspiron B130 - Wireless card not detected?

Hello, I am totally new to Linux...and anything not Windows related. I just installed Ubuntu 6.06 Dapper Drake on my Dell Inspiron B130. A lot of stuff works great, but there are a few things that dont work so good. The major problem that I am having is with my wireless internet. I am not able to get onto the internet wirelessly. I have tried everything that I can think of. It worked fine under Windows (the wireless internet did), but doesnt seem to work under Ubuntu. I cant seem to find any drivers for my wireless card. Its an internal one that came with the laptop. There is probably some simple solution, but I dont know it. Any help would be appreciated. Another problem I have been having is when I close the lid of my laptop, and re-open it, the screen stays blank. I have to hold down the power button to turn it off, then start it again. I have heard of other people having this problem, but none of their solutions work for me. Again, thanks in advance.
