View Full Version : [ubuntu] Wifi Help =S

June 30th, 2009, 09:00 PM
Just installed Ubuntu 9.04 (dual boot with vista) [Im so proud of myself =D] and just tried to connect to the internet, but when I click on the network icon in the task bar it says:

Wired Network [greyed out]
disconnected [greyed out]
VPN Connection >

(or similar, can't quite remember)

Now I need your help to connect to a wireless network with a USB wifi adapter.
(I'm new to Ubuntu and Linux so you may have to speak to me like im three years old xD)

I've ordered a new network card that's compatible with Linux (An Edimax EW7128g.) It has yet to arrive but I'm hoping it will work.
