Well it is pretty much the same as with windows. But if you could give us some more details like what OS? Manufacturer of the wireless card and router? Are you getting any error messages?

Also, I would like you to open terminal and type: ifconfig Then copy and paste what you get up here so that we can take a look at it.

Cheers!

That was helpful. It tells me that you don't have any ip which is a given. But also, what is Linux OS is it, and who is the manufacturer of the card and model card is it?

Cheers!

Thanks for doing that! If you go to this page you will be given directions for installing the drivers that you will need to run your wifi in ubuntu.

If you have any problems with it just let us know and we can help you more, but the page is very descriptive.

Cheers!

Try PCLinuxOS and have your wireless drivers accessiable on a disc or flash stick. It will ask for them in the first-start wizard. NDISWRAPPER rules.
