If the adapter doesn't show up in the network manager, you will need drivers for it.
You can make most windows drivers work using a program called ndiswrapper. Download and install that onto ubuntu (I think there's a package for it but I'm not sure), then go find your windows drivers.
Load the windows driver file with ndiswrapper (there's instructions somewhere), and it should, with any luck, work.
