Can you provide some additional details? What version of Ubuntu are you trying to install? If it's Precise(12.04), are you using the latest daily iso?

I've examined the contents of the nic-usb-modules udeb from the 3.2.0-24.37 kernel in precise-proposed and can confirm the rtl8187 module is included:

$ for x in `ls nic-usb-modules*.udeb`; do echo $x; dpkg -c $x | grep "rtl8187.ko"; done
