    Question Can't connect wirelessly, but it says I am?

    I just installed Ubuntu 12.10 on my Dell Studio 540 desktop.
    When I try to connect wirelessly, the wireless connection icon (in the top right corner of the screen) says I'm connected. If I select "Connection Information" it shows that I'm connected.

    But when I try to surf or update my OS, it gives me one of those failed to connect messages.

    Can somebody help me???
    Oh you'll get yours, Microsoft.

    Open a terminal window (search for "terminal" in dash).

    Then in the terminal type:

    Code:
    sudo lshw -C network
    and

    Code:
    iwconfig
    and please produce the output here.
