Lightbulb Ubuntu doesn't recognize wireless card on Grundig laptop.

Hello, this is my first time posting a message and I have a problem with my Grundig's (model GNB-250D) laptop wireless card.
I recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 and tried to use a wireless connection to browse the internet but it didn't detect any, it seemed strange as it worked perfectly on Windows. I can browse the internet fine if I use an Ehternet cable.
Any clues on what could be causing this?

this may be because Gruding didn't release open source driver. Therefore you have to install it manually. Please include iwconfig output and wi-fi card model for more help.
