    I can't connect to my wireless network

    Ok first off let me tell you I am absolutely new to Ubuntu. That being said I am not a illiterate computer person, I know the PC world quite well. I have the dual-boot Ubuntu/Windows setup, and when I go into Ubuntu and try to connect to my wireless network it does nothing. I enter the ESSID, router pw, and set the security type correct. But when I hit connect nothing happens, this is very frustrating because I want to enjoy the full experience of Ubuntu, so any help would be awesome and much appreciated.



    Thanks,

    Joe

    What happens when you ping your wireless router/access point?
    Steady movement is more important than speed, much of the time. So long as there is a regular progression of Stimuli to get your mental hooks into, there is room for lateral movement. Once this begins, its rate is a matter of discretion.

    To ping you can open a terminal and type:

    Code:
    ping -c 4 your_router_address
    For example:

    Code:
    ping -c 4 192.168.0.1
    -o)
    /\\
    _\_V

    OK thanks again for the quick response, and I am actually at work atm. But when I get home in the morning I will ping and give the results.
