    Just use the device manager to install the driver. Use it through the menu system like so: System>Administration>Hardware Drivers.

    Your device should be listed in there.
    I reject your reality and substitute my own.

    I'm no good with network manager, but a lot of folks report success with wicd. You can install it from synaptic or terminal.

    EDIT: Sorry, I just saw the line about inserting the disc. Did you not install ubuntu from a downloaded disc image?
