Ubuntu and Kubuntu are the same thing with the exception of KDE instead
of Gnome (and the various desktop specific apps although they are all
available ie. firefox and konqueror)

I installed it on my Dell Latitude D520 and have no problem with
wireless. I also just installed it on my dad's laptop which is an HP
Pavilion DV6000 and it picked it up fine. 

Most wireless chipsets don't have a problem anymore.

Go GNU/Linux!!
