wifi card not detected in Karmic Koala

Hey, I just got a new laptop (Thinkpad W500) and installed Kubuntu Karmic Koala on it and it seems it doesn't detect my wifi card at all, which is a Thinkpad wifi bgn( Realtek 8172 chipset). Any help on this, please?

The driver and the patch for 64 bit available at bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/401126?comments=all did the work for me ... it works like a charm now. Next step: make ATI work with karmic which as a big PITA as the wifi card was.
