    Not sure if this package will help, it will not harm

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-jaunty

    We need to update your wireless drivers, I'm just try to find where they are.

    This should work

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-jaunty-generic
    I can do this on my machine, you need to confirm your network connection.

    Check in your Software Sources application that under Updates the jaunty-backports box is ticked.

    Hmm how do I do that? I know how to do it on Xubuntu but not on Kubuntu.

    I did try that code but it still does not work.

    Sorry, I don't know how either, somewhere you need to enable backports....
