Which version of Ubuntu? Did it offer to install a custom driver from your wireless card? I ask because almost every version of Ubuntu I have used has offered to install a proprietary wireless driver. All except 9.10 which ignored my wireless card (at the time I fell back to 9.04, but now I am running 10.4).

I am using Ubuntu 9.10 on my Dell laptop.
The internet connection that I will be using is wired.(I am able to use the same internet connection on Windows 7)

I suggest trying the Live CD for either 9.04 or 10.04 and see if that sees the network card, and if it offers to install a proprietary driver. If so, I would suggest switching to one of those versions. (I moved from Fedora to Ubuntu years ago because I got tired to having to manually configure netwokr settings, among other things.)

Problem solved....
open terminal, and used the following command.

Now, You just need to follow the instructions. Thats all....
To check the connection status you can use plog...
