Hi all, I'm new to the world of linux here and I am interested in getting to know this OS alot better. I installed Ubuntu two days ago and I am having difficulties setting up the wireless for my laptop.
I have been reading through alot of threads to no avail. I recently stumbled upon wieman01's thread (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=318539) and it looks like it will work...
Although I'm having difficulty at the first step! Here is what I get when I type "iwconfig" into the terminal:
If I am correct, my network should be showing up there. I am using WPA2 and a hidden SSID.teddy@teddy-laptop:~$ iwconfig
lo no wireless extensions.
eth0 no wireless extensions.

Any help greatly appreciated.
