View Full Version : [ubuntu] Need help- i don't know anything :( wireless internet.

basically, all i know is stuff about windows. when my 2003 dell inspiron 1000 crashed for the final time i decided i wanted to install ubuntu, and it was quick and simple.

So far, all of the things i've tried to connect to the internet do not work. I'm using a 2wire AT&T connection and a new Netgear card that is compadible with the network.

the very simple plug in and go did not work, it keeps asking me for the passphrase over and over(and yes i did type in the correct code.) i've read a bunch of threads and searched both here and google, and everything i've tried to my comprehension level has failed.

can someone walk me through the setup?

edit: i have not been able to install any drivers because i can't get to the net.
