When i load up ubuntu, rather than windows vista which is my standard operating system (Hp Laptop) the blue light next to the my LAN switch does not turn on therefore my internet does not work, but when i load up vista the light turns blue and it works. I have a feeling this has something to do with the harddrive but i'm not sure so i put the problem with wireless and connection. if anyone knows how i can fix this thanks

What model do you have?

Can we see the output?
lshw -C network

You may need the Windows driver, which I use myself.
driver=ndiswrapper+bcmwl5
