Can I update the kernel of my 10.04 LTS to the latest kernel?

Is it possible to install a new kernel to Ubuntu 10.04 using a debian package or something ?

I have a new machine with the Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6230 for Wi-Fi but the kernel won't detect it (maybe because it is newer ?). I don't want to use a newer version of Ubuntu because I much prefer Ubuntu 10.04. I can not connect to the internet by any means on the new machine (not even with a wired Ethernet connection). I need to either have a new kernel or connect to the internet to run an update (which will hopefully solve the problem). I found the driver I need for wifi on HERE but the minmum supported kernel version is (2.6.36). Any help, please ?
