    Re: Wifi wont show up

    Ubuntu is not crafted to work with that machine as Windows was. Linux distributions try to be a one size fits all product and so are not machine specific. You have to do things differently. Have you set up a wireless connection to your router?

    https://help.ubuntu.com/12.04/ubuntu-help/net.html

    When you installed Ubuntu did you have a wired connection or a wireless connection? Have you clicked the Network Manager icon in the top panel. Do you see a list of wireless access points in range? Is your wireless access point listed? Is networking enabled? Is WiFi enabled?

    Regards.
    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.
