Ubuntu 7.04 Won't Find my Wireless Network

I ran Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty Fawn) from the Live CD, and it almost instantly detected my wireless network (named 'linksys' to keep things simple). After installing it in a dual boot with Windows XP (which never has any trouble detecting my network), it will not find my network. I went into Ubuntu and manually configured every option following the same settings as are in XP. This showed around a 30 percent conectivity level less than half of the time I booted intol Ubuntu, but it sitll wopuldn't let me use Firefox to get any necessary updates. So, I tried updating the drivers for my wirless miniPCI Card, which is a Texas Instruments Model. When I updated the driver, not even Windows found my network anymore, so I rolled it back, but Ubuntu was still internet-less. When I followed the instructions for installing NDISwrapper and my Windows drivers into Ubuntu from the Ubuntu forums (http://ubuntuguide.o...8Ndiswrapper.29), they didn't work...and now I am completely out of options.

I need a way to make Ubuntu find my wireless Network, any help would be great. Also, if somebody could elaborate more on the instructions from the Ubuntu Site about installing NDISwrapper, that would probably work just as well. Thanks!
