    Compaq Presario V6000 ubuntu 12.04 lts Wireless wont work

    Hi All,

    Im completely new to ubuntu and all of my previous computer experience is with windows so I would really appreciate all the help i can get.
    I have looked through forum after forum and I still cant make sense of it.
    I freshly installed ubuntu 12.04 lts from CD last night and although I can get an internet connection through an ethernet cable, I dont pick up any wireless connections.
    Please help
