I recently purchased my friends lenovo. It holds Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.04.1. Windows easily connects to the wifi here at school and at home, though Ubuntu continuously has problems. My wifi at home, though not mine, is sometimes viewable with the drop down menu, but even once it sees the wifi it has a hard time connecting. And finally when it does, the internet cant even load a page. Now, here at school the wifi is ultra fast and Ubuntu can see it, but it rarely connects to the wifi. Also, when it does, it can barely load the home page.

It's literally driving me nuts. I am not a programmer per se, but definitely have some terminal skills.
