WiFi won't detect in Xubuntu


i just set up my laptop's wireless card using the 43xx fwcutter program. i got the wireless to go on (the little blue light) but it's not detecting my wireless. i don't have ethernet at the moment, but i can download and transfer files from my other computer.

any help would be much appreciated. thanks!

Have you got module loaded? Is your card fully supported? What card have you got?

Code:
lspci|grep Net
lsmod
ifconfig
To install everything, you may need to get hooked up over ethernet, if possible
