Hi. I downloaded Ubuntu for my mother's HP laptop. I was confident and stupid enough to delete Windows from her hard drive, because I had done this same process on my boyfriend's Toshiba laptop and everything worked just fine, so I didn't have any worries.
When I installed Ubuntu, everything was fine. It absolutely WILL NOT access any sort of wireless internet, whatsoever. It keeps telling me to download updates and restricted hardware, but I don't have internet to download anything!
