The link below is loaded with information on using wifi in Ubuntu.
WifiDocs/Driver/Ndiswrapper - Community Ubuntu Documentation

Like the suggestion in that link says, if your wireless network card is not now supporting
open source drivers, the best and easiest solution is to get one that does.

Odds are, if you are making this post, I bet you are having issues with a Broadcom chip. NDISwrapper may not work for you, you may wish to use a b43 driver. neither of which worked for me on a couple computers. good luck! let me know if you figure something new out!
