I recently installed Ubuntu 11.04 on my laptop.
Wireless is not working.
I do not have a lan card working  so as to  connect to it and use.Any
how I want to use the wifi so what do I need to install on it.
I will need to download any thing in the windows OS only (my laptop is
dual boot) and then install in Ubuntu.
So how should I go on.
lspci out put of my device is
