hi all...
first time to try ubuntu, absolutly sick of vista and antivirus slowing my machine down. I can connect to my netgear wireless modem by wire no problem, but i can't seem to connect wirelessly. some help would be appreciated. And...i am not exactly a whiz on computers, but willing to learn..

Thanks
