I'm a complete newbie.
I've recently installed Ubuntu on my Dell Inspiron 1721 laptop through Windows. So, it's a dual OS now.

Right now my problem is being able to connect to my wireless network.

When I run my laptop with Ubuntu, I don't see the WiFi light on the laptop lit and I'm not able to see what wireless networks are available. It appears that Ubuntu doesn't recognize the wireless card.

I'm lost... maybe bitten off more than I can chew.

The laptop has a Dell Wirelss 1390 WLAN Mini-Card. Braodcom 440x10/100 Integrated Controller.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks.
