Ok so basically i've been converting alot of people from windows to ubuntu telling them it's very easy to use and such (I've never used linux because right now my laptop is busted)

So very easy blah blah blah until they try the internet none of them can get a connection at all it recognises the router but wont make a connection i believe it could be a driver problem but i wanted to ask you guys first.

Have you tried the "Search" feature of the forums? This question has been asked ALOT lately.

we need more information.

What kind of internet connection ?

November 8th, 2008, 06:51 PM
Well mostly netgear wireless connections not using ethernet cables or anything like that.

What version ubuntu are they trying to run? Depending on that there's various problems with wireless but generally speaking it works for everyone.

What is their hardware?
