This is my very first attempt at installing an OS other then OSX and Windows. I have an Acer Aspire 3690 Celeron M Laptop. I installed Ubuntu 12.04 via usb. Everything seems to be working fine except for the Network Connection! It keeps asking me to connect. I have the Network Name and the Password correct but for some reason it just does not work. I have no problem with network connections (wired or wireless) when I boot in Windows Vista. Do I need to install a different version or is there a fix I need to do with the existing 12.04? I have a netgear router and roadrunner cable access.
I originally installed 12.10 and had the same problem. I searched posts and did several different things with terminal. I don't know what I did but 12.10 stopped loading! I erased my thumb drive and loaded 12.04. Same problem - different distro. So before I do any more damage, I was hoping to get some guidance.
I notice some posts with the output from a command in terminal. I am not sure how to do that in this environment. I am guessing I would have to cut and paste onto the usb drive and transfer to my Mac and send to you. Please advise on this procedure also as necessary.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
