    I think we need the wireless adapter's drivers to make it work in Ubuntu. The same thing happened to me when upgrading from Vista to XP. My computer was built around Vista, and I had to search the net for hours finding all of the drivers to make XP work.

Am using in my laptop linux os, but its not showing wifi connection in my home,

Linux does not usually play nice with wireless routers, it can take up to four to five reboots to access the router. A trick that I usually do to connect to the router is to join an unlisted network, and use your router's name as the unidentified network name. That sometimes works for me.

I hope this helps!
