    Okay, this is probably in the wrong section, but the mods will put it where it belong.

    What type of wireless card do you have?

    Are you authenticating with WEP, WPA ?

    okay, and what type of wireless card are you using, i.e. the card in you computer?
    if you are not sure, what type of computer do you have?

    Try this - Ubuntu Wireless Setup

    If this does not help, open a terminal and enter
    Code:
    su
    .
    Then enter your root password.
    Next enter
    Code:
    iwconfig
    post the results here.
    This will tell us if the OS is seeing the wireless card, i.e. the drivers are installed and working properly.

    Hi,

    If I may be allowed to butt into this thread, I'd like to offer some help.

    I think that more detailed info of the hardware is needed here. There are many different wireless chips that are being manufactured, and the name of the card is usually useless in determining the chipset.

    There are terminal commands that will give us the detailed info. I would like you to enter these commands, and then post the output of the command here in this thread. Do you have a wired internet connection, or do you have to boot into windows to connect? If you boot windows, save the command outputs as .txt files. Then windows can open them.

    Here's the commands. To see all PCI type devices:
    Code:
    lspci -nn
    To see all USB devices:
    Code:
    lsusb
    To list all of the driver modules that your computer has loaded:
    Code:
    lsmod
    Please do not send Private Messages to me with requests for help. I will not reply.
