Hello. I have both Vista and Ubuntu installed on my computer, but I am unable to connect to the Internet wirelessly while using Ubuntu (the NetworkManager just doesn't detect any networks). There is a physical switch on my computer that can be turned on or off to detect networks, but it remains inactive regardless of what physical position it is in. I am able to connect to wired Internet without a problem though.

I tried looking at the Hawking website (hawkingtech.com) for drivers, but the only drivers they have are for Windows and Mac. Since I'm not even entirely sure what the problem is, could I have some much-needed advice/help?

Thanks in advance. :)

It looks to Google like this is your router. Let's see what the wireless card is in your laptop. Please open Applications > Accessories > Terminal and type:
lspci -nnPost the result.

02:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g [14e4:4315] (rev 01)Here is your wireless. Do you have an option to hook up to an ethernet connection? If so, you can go to System > Administration > Hardware Drivers and activate the Broadcom STA driver. Then detach the ethernet cable, reboot and you'll most likely have a working wireless connection.
