I just bought an Toshiba Satellite C855-1UT laptop and I installed ubuntu 12.10, but the wireless doesn't work. Does anyone knows where to find wireless driver for it?

Okay, so I'm pretty new to the whole Ubuntu thing. I installed it yesterday alongside Windows 8, and it installed fine. Then I started it up and tried to connect to my wireless router. It wouldn't give me the option and the only thing that I could find was Edit Connections thing along the top which I didn't understand at all and just ended up confusing me.
I just bought a Toshiba C855D satellite yesterday and installed 12.04 this morning without a problem. on the first boot up, I had no issues with wireless at all until I installed updates and restarted my computer. At this point, even after disabling and reenabling networking, I am not being shown any wireless connections that are definitely in range.
Ok, so I installed BT R3 next to windows 7 on my Toshiba C855 s5214 laptop. When I start Wicd it recognizes and connects to my network and the wireless light is on. Whenever I open up a web browser the internet stops working, the wireless light remains on, and Wicd cannot find any networks until I reboot and am thus forced to repeat the process. My wireless card is a Realtek RTL8188CE.
