    Please help. I cannot connect wirelessly.

    I am new Ubuntu user. I installed it yesterday on my laptop. Everything is working fine except my PDA and wireless internet connection not working.

    My network is detected by router but actually I cannot connect to internet. Please explain in simple words how to repair this problem. I am not very expert in computers. I have gone through some knowledge base in this forum but very complicated, I could not understand actually.

    Thanks in anticipation,

    When you're in that terminal, type in: lspci and also paste that output.
    It's not free, it's GNU/Open Source.

    Thank so much for your support and help but now I am having another big problem. My UBUNTU is not starting at all. It is not going beyond the log on screen. Even that log on screen is only lines. I have posted my problem in desktop environment, If you or somebody else could help me that will be very good. I shall be much thankful.
