Why is Ubuntu unable to connect to my wireless router?

I have just installed the latest version of Ubuntu and I want to connect to the Internet using my wireless router.

I tried using Ndiswrapper but I received errors. I also tried using suggestions in this WiFiHowTo.

When I try installing from the additional drivers, I receive the error messages below.

Sorry, installation of this driver failed.
Please have a look at the log file for details: /var/log/jockey.log
