On my brother's laptop, after a storm and it shutting off since the power went out, there is no longer any wireless. All it says is manual configuration and shows the modem and ethernet. How do I fix it?

lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.

irda0 no wireless extensions.

I had the wireless working first thing when I installed Ubuntu but then it just disappeared :/

have you tried restricted drivers? system->admin->restricted drivers ( or hardware drivers)
