I installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my HP G72. All the drivers are installed except my wireless driver. I tried some solutions I saw online but none of them worked for me. Can somebody help me out with it? Thanks.

Or you can use Jockey-GTK to check any Proprietary driver for your wireless card.... – Ravi Apr 14 '12 at 6:21
We need more hardware information to help you, can you look at this question and then edit your question adding the information. – fossfreedom Apr 14 '12 at 9:37

Check this link Wireless troubleshooting
or if yu have a wireless driver installed on windows use the following

Using Windows Wireless Drivers

Ubuntu supports a system known as NDISWrapper. This allows you to use a Windows wireless device driver under Ubuntu.

Obtain the Windows Driver for your system and locate the file that ends with .inf.

Install ndisgtk (System → Administration → Synaptic Package Manager).

Open ndisgtk (System → Administration → Windows Wireless Drivers).

Select Install new driver.

Choose the location of your Windows .inf file and click Install.

Click OK.
