Arrow Problem with wireless

I have done a dual boot today...
Ubuntu 9.04 and Windows 7
Its my first time to use Ubuntu so i dont know how to set up wireless...
Im using Broadband 802.11 g adapter (recognized by windows 7) , but
i dont have any driver for ubuntu.I know that if i set up internet i can download video and sound driver but i cant set up wireless at all...
When i go to Hardware its not showing drivers at all!!!
What should i do,where can i download something that will maybe be compatible with ubuntu (Broadband 802.11 g)

802.11 g is a protocol, not a kind of adapter. So your WiFi card speaks 802.11 g, but that alone tells us nothing. What kind of adapter do you have, specifically? What does lspci tell you when you run it in your terminal? Not all cards are currently supported, as many companies keep their standards closed to remain in control of what is developed.
