Hi.

I am have both Windows and Ubuntu on my computer, I am fairly new to Ubuntu. The Wireless card I am using is the Dell WLAN card and it works fine in windows, but I cannot connect to any wireless networks in Ubuntu.

The light on my laptop that says "WiFi" is on when I am using Windows, but not when using Ubuntu, could this have any thing to do with it.

Thanks

I have followed the trouble shooting steps and entered the commands:

lspci
iwconfig
lshw -C network

After following the trouble shooting steps it just leads me back to the same section:

Is your device on, but how do I turn it on?
