Btw, the wireless problem has tasken a turn for the worse. I was using Ubuntu this morning to get all the info but right after connected to the wireless, the PC hung up. As usual, I rebooted my PC and tried again but it was exactly the same.
sudo lshw -c display

So, I immediately disconnected and unchecked 'auto connect' to the wireless connection and retrived all the info. The following is networking info.
I've gotta say my PC is really acting up on Ubuntu: even without being connected to the wireless, it hung up after about 15 minutes. It's seriously annoying and makeing me lose will to use Linux
sudo lshw -c network

Ever since I've bought this PC, I've been wanting to use Linux. Also tried different distros. I've been quite eager to get it installed and configured so I can actually start doing some work on it. But now, it just seems impossible...
Anyway, many thanks and regards.
