So I just got Ubuntu last night, I'm working on getting it set up today. I installed it to an HP laptop.
When I tried to connect to the internet, I opened up Network Manager, and couldn't locate any wireless networks. I noticed that my HP wireless assistant was off, so I tapped the button that turned it on--no result.
This always worked with Vista--do you have any idea how to pick up wireless networks/turn on the Wireless Assistant with Ubuntu?
Thanks in advance. Please be patient with me, I'm still learning the basics--I've got a long way to go!
