Wireless network problem

Hi ... I am trying to get a laptop working with linux and I'm having trouble with the wireless network.

It's a Sony VAIO VGN-NR10E/S with ubuntu (not sure which version but it's the latest download)

Under Edit Wireless Networks I can't detect any networks. In Network Settings there are options for wired connection and point-to-point only, but no wireless options. In Hardware Drivers I get a message saying "proprietary drivers are being used to make the computer work properly"

Any advice appreciated!
