no wireless on aspire 4730z using ubuntu 8.10

I just installed Ubuntu 8.10 intrebid ibex on my acer aspire 4730z. I read online some where this distro on my laptop would make everything run after installing. But I don't have any wireless. I go to the network configuration and under wired it says auto eth0 but under the wireless tab there is nothing. Is there something I am missing? I am EXTREMLY new to linux. Thanks in advance
