Hello everyone,

I have just installed ubuntu, the first linux os I have ever installed. I am very excited about it.

I want to use my wireless modem

Hello Will.

And welcome to Ubuntuforums!

Hmm, sure, we'll try to assist you in getting connected.

Are you in Ubuntu right now?
If so, then insert your wireless device, wait 5 seconds. Then open up a terminal ("Applications>Accessories>Terminal" in the Gnome Menu) and can you copy and paste the output of this command

In your next post.

Thanks.
