    Since Ubuntu 12.10 is the newest release it still has more bugs then its lts release. Unless you really need to upgrade. I suggest you back everything up you need and install Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. I'm sure all your drivers will be working out of the box =)

    If wireless does not come on, reboot your computer.

    For above to work, you must have already set your router to WPA2 Personal AES, proper encryption key, saved, then rebooted your router.

    <edit>

    WEP protocol is the worst protocol in creation and can be broken literally in a few minutes. It lulls you into a false illusion of security while offering none at all. Use WPA2 personal with a good encryption phrase of at least 30 characters, mix of letters and numbers.
