Upgrade to Ubuntu Gusty - Wireless card no longer detected!

Hi linuxquestions...

Today I updated from ubuntu feisty fawn 7.04 to ubuntu gusty gibbon 7.10.
I just changed the apt-get sources list from feisty to gibbon, and ran sudo apt-get update, and sudo apt-get dist-upgrade...
It seemed to work fine, I restarted the computer, and there it no longer detects my wireless card. I open up network-manager and the wireless card doesn't exist, I run ifconfig and iwconfig, neither find my wireless card. I think its an intel card, not sure, and not sure how to find out.
My computer is a Toshiba satellite M30.
512 RAM, 1.4ghz.
I am not too bad with linux as I use it on my desktop.
But this has thrown me...

Any ideas?

EDIT: I have now used the ubuntu sources list generator from their website and done another update and upgrade.
Still no luck :-(

OK I fixed it!

If anyone else comes across this issue, all I had to do was go

sudo apt-get install linux-ubuntu-modules-2.6.22-12-386

to install the modules.
I should have thought of this earlier.
