Wiped out XP and installed Ubuntu. I can connect to the web with a hardline but can't connect to (or even locate) a wireless connection. Has to be a driver right? Anybody know where I should start looking for (and how to install) this driver?

To start looking, you need identify what kind of a chipset your card has. So, open up a terminal and run lspci if it's a PCI card or lsusb if it's a USB card and post back with the results (just the output for your wireless interface, if you can figure it out on your own).
