    Question Ubuntu 12.04 Question


    I tried Ubuntu 12.04 using a boot flash drive, I liked the interface and it ran very smoothly. The only thing keeping me from switching is an issue with networking. My wireless light will not turn on and I cannot connect to my internet connection. I'm using an acer netbook.

    That laptop usually has either an Atheros or a Broadcom wireless chipset.
    The page that I linked previously gives the commands needed to get that information.
