    Hi insaneatbirth and welcome to the forums.

    Did you try configuring your card through the Ubuntu Network Configuration utility in your menu? If you have and are getting nowhere, we need to know the chip set, make and model of your card. To get us that information, open a terminal, (look for the icon in your menu that looks like a little television), type in this command and press enter:
    Code:
    lspci | grep Wireless
    Write down what is returned and post it here please.

    i'm not on my Ubuntu machine so I can't remember right now how to get there. This should help though...

    As far as the command goes, it is case sensitive. The only letter in the whole command to be capitalised is the "W" in "Wireless."

    Got to travel for four and a half hours now. Check back with you later.
