Did you install the Ubuntu netbook edition?
http://www.ubuntu.com/netbook

Linux drivers do not work like Windows drivers. Linux have all it's supported hardware drivers included with the installation.
If the Ubuntu version you installed do not support your hardware, then it is easier to just try a different version.

It is possible to compile additional drivers into the Ubuntu kernel, but you really need to know what you are doing.

If your machine is not in the supported list here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupport/Machines/Netbooks
Then you have a problem.

Hi!

To determine what wireless card/chipset you have, open up a terminal and type the following.

lspci -v | less

Read more here for Wifi troubleshooting: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/WirelessTroubleShootingGuide

You can check info about your hardware (including webcam and wifi card) with the command:

sudo lshw
