Wireless Drivers - Inspiron 1525


I have recently installed Linux Mint 10 on my Dell Inspiron 1525. However I don't have any wireless drivers installed and can only access the internet directly from the ethernet cable.

I was wondering what I need to do to get the Linux drivers to obtain wireless connectivity?

Code:
lspci -v
lsmod
ifconfig -a
iwconfig
Cheers,

Josh

Thanks anyway.
