    I'd suggest you post in this thread:
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=779754&page=1
    assuming the information already in it doesn't help you right off the bat.

    Otherwise, provide "lspci -v" and "lsmod" output in this thread for starters.
    It would be useful to know how the wireless router is configure too (wep or wpa etc...)

    Bump. I've been trying to help salihumon and it looks like the card is configured, an interface name is assigned, and the network is detected. However, the connection can't be established for some reason.

    If anyone has more experience with WPA than me, please chime in. It might be a authentication issue or something like that. Thanks in advance.

    This thread is solved. salihumon found the wiki page I created on how to do this and contacted me. The wiki page for connecting to MAASnet which is the wireless network of the university of Maastricht :
