    only my home wireless doesn't work..?

    Okay! so I used the windows installer to dual boot ubuntu on my windows 7 notebook. everything works fine, but i've had wireless issues from the start. My home wireless network says it's connected, but I don't have access to the internet. I tried my neighbors wifi and my school's wifi and they work just fine. I'm a complete and total noob to linux so be gentle! thanks for the help.

    sorry i know there are a ton of wireless issue threads but i've been searching for hours and i haven't found anything really similar to my problem :/

    Could be you're not using the correct security settings for your wifi at home? e.g. you need to use WPA2-PSK and you're trying to use WPA

    Sorry to hear that! I don't have that much experience with Wifi troubleshooting on Ubuntu but I thought I'd make an attempt at tier 1 support lol

    If you load a live cd does the wifi behave differently?

    I don't have a live CD and I don't have any CD's to install with.

    oh sorry... are the problems just related to ubuntu or does the wifi have issues in windows as well?
