My mind is completely boggled on how to connect to the internet. I think it's my computer is why it won't connect but anyway here is my problem.
Inspiron Mini 10 1012, Wi-Fi Wireless Card DW1397
NETGEAR model WGT624 v4
*Connecting Wirelessly*
I enter all the necessary fields for my router information, like my SSID my MAC address for the router the WPA security key (it is correct, i made the password for it) And after all the trouble, the computer doesn't show any signs of my router, even if i'm less than half a foot from my router.
*Connecting via Ethernet cable*
I plug in one of the yellow ethernet cords my cable company gave me into my computer, AUTO Etho will attempt to connect numerous times, but in the end it doesn't connect.
Please Help :)

Did you check the router instead of your laptop for problems?

after random page surfing i found this post, and it may help. I believe that it is a different model, but the solution does not seem to depend on that. http://computerandu.wordpress.com/2011/05/04/how-to-solve-no-wireless-networks-in-ubuntu-11-04/
