What does ifconfig -a report? If it shows an eth0 it means that kubuntu
can see the card, but that no IP address has been configured for it.

To configure an IP for the card, you'll need to
edit /etc/networking/interfaces and either tell it to use DHCP or
manually assign it an IP address.

If ifconfig -a shows nothing other than lo, it means the drivers for
the card aren't being loaded.
