    Help connecting to WiFi on Ubuntu netbook


    Just got a Dell Insprion netbook running on Ubuntu. We have no experience with this OS and can't get it to connect to our home wireless network. All other home computers (Windows) have good connections and we are 100% sure the network password is being entered correctly. Whenever we enter the password nothing happens and then it asks us to authenticate again. What are we missing?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Welcome to the forums!

    I don't run any wireless so can't offer up anything specific but this link should get you started in the troubleshooting process:
