    Yes, its another wireless question


    Hello all! This is my first post and I'm very new to Linux, I managed to figure out how to install my wireless usb and driver (I had to combine 2 how to's I found). So I have 2 questions now. The first is, I ran iwconfig and got this
    Code:
    lo        no wireless extensions.
    
    eth0      no wireless extensions.
    
    wlan0     IEEE 802.11g  ESSID:off/any
              Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.437 GHz  Access Point: Not-Associated
              Bit Rate:300 Mb/s   Tx-Power:32 dBm
              RTS thr:2347 B   Fragment thr:2346 B
              Power Management:off
              Link Quality:0  Signal level:0  Noise level:0
              Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
              Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:0   Missed beacon:0
    Not sure if that's what I'm supposed to see or if its telling me there is something wrong. The second question is, I can see the ap I want t o connect to in network manager but I have no idea how to connect to it. I'm sure this is very easy if I just new what I was doing. I'm a reformed windows nerd so please forgive me! Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hello and Welcome!

    Do you not see an option to Connect?
    You should be able to open up Network Manager and click on either Add or Edit to input your settings.

    Turns out kubuntu was somehow faulty. Got rid of it and installed Ubuntu. Wireless works great! Now if I could just figure out how to get a higher screen res than 800x600...

    Hello. Start a new post with your screen res question and give us the output of
    Code:
    lspci | grep -i vga
    cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log
    cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    (Cat just prints the contents of those text files to your screen. You can also just open them up with a text editor and copy and paste. Or for the log, Ubuntu has a log viewer app of some sort.)
