Some wireless manufacturers still only provide windows drivers for their products and they don't provide the opensource community with enough info to build their own drivers. For that you can try using ndiswrapper, which uses the windows drivers. The Wiki on the site explains how to get it installed, but first check if it isn't already included with ubuntu 8.10 (it might just need to be properly configured).

http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net

Just open firefox and connect to the https site, and then the browser should warn you that it is a secure site and in order to open it you need the certificate. You can then click on the Link to "Or you can add an Exception", click on "Add Exception", then "Get Certificate" and so on.

Ubuntu has ndiswrapper in it's repositories, so install it using the package manager. It seems the ndiswrapper site has changed, it used to have a very comprehensive wiki in the Link I posted above, now it just seems to be the download link. Below is another howto to get it running:

GOOD,  i have installed windows driver as you said.  Now wireless is working. Thanks.
And i need other help also. I have installed WINE and Please tell me how to install Internet Explorer on it?

rindiCommented:
Look for wine-doors, it is a tool that comes with install scripts for various windows apps, including IE, and with it it is much easier to get them working. First check via apt-get if wine-doors is included in the repositories, otherwise get it from the site directly.

Maybe you have to uninstall again and then reinstall. Anyway, why do you want IE? Firefox is the best web browser available and it runs natively under Linux.
