    Weird wifi problem

    Hi everyone, I've finally installed Ubuntu 9.04 in my laptop and I really love it. The problem is...the wifi card doesn't works. It is weird because when I booted the cd, y used the try & install feature. There, everything worked, the wifi, the graphics card, etc. But when I installed it, I couldn't find any wireless network like I did when using the Live cd. I am new to Linux and I really like it, please help! Thanks in advance

    Nopre, I followed all the instructions, installed the drivers, rebooted and everything, but still the same
    I dont know, but I think I have the drivers beacuase the wireless card is detected, and in the Live cd I can connect without problems. I dont know why it doesn't works.
