    I don't how what the menu looks like in Lubuntu, but somewhere in "settings" there must be something for network connections. There you should be able to set the name and password for the network. These settings won't persist after rebooting until you have installed, but it's mostly for testing. It's good to know in advance whether your wifi will work or whether you'll need to download additional drivers for it.

    That depends upon your meaning. It could be that you need a driver or that you are not sure of the method to make a WiFi connection. I could explain it to you if you was using standard Ubuntu but I am not using Lubuntu. So the best that I can do is give you this link. I am sure that it will be helpful.

    Apparently under the Networking heading you are advised to look in the "tray" for Network Manager. I am guessing that in Lubuntu the tray is at the bottom of the screen. Clicking on the Network Manager icon will pull up a menu. Do you see any WiFi access points listed? Is your network there? If the answer is Yes, then you do not need a wireless driver.

    See how you go for now

    Regards and welcome to the community.

    Then you need a driver. Look for System Settings. I cannot tell you where it is in Lubuntu but once you have opened System Settings look for Software & Updates and open that. Then go to the Additional Drivers tab. It is there that you can change video drivers but you should also find an option to install a wireless driver.

    You need to find a utility called Software & Updates (that is its name in 13.04). It used to be called Software Sources. It is a place where we can change settings for receiving notification of updates. It is also now (in 13.04) where we install additional drivers. There used to be a separate utility to do this but it is now part of Software & Updates. It is a different utility to Update Manager/Software Updater.

    Steam? I am so old that I remember steam trains and that is about all I know about steam. You might find this interesting:

    http://www.webupd8.org/2013/03/how-t...m-friends.html

    http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2013/05/v...beta-for-linux

    I find both of those sites useful for keeping up to date with Linux and Ubuntu.
