Listing your system specs would be helpful. Knowing which version of Ubuntu you've installed would be helpful. Knowing whether you have any Linux experience or if you're a newb would be helpful. Knowing whether you're asking about an ethernet connection or wireless would be helpful. In other words, you haven't provided nearly enough info.

Sorry, Computer is a hp pavilion dv 2025nr. Processor is amd turion 64. 2 gigs ram. 320 disk space. Running ubuntu 10.04. I have no prior knowledge with ubuntu and im trying to connect wirelessly.

What happened was i installed a new hardrive onto my computer and i wanted to give ubuntu a try. Usually when i used to reinstall windows i have to go to hps site and dowload all the drivers necessary for the computer to work properly. So when i boot up ubuntu i am assuming i have to do the same thing. Like install nvidia drivers, audio, networking. ect. Let me know. Thanks

I followed the above link. My switch is turned on also however it still says that it is disabled. also, when i try and run the test under system testing for the network controller, im pretty sure that it just times out or something.

Is this a USB wireless dongle or a PCI wireless card? Did you try using the Windows wireless driver as described in the link?

Would you consider a different distro such as Linux Mint? It's based on Ubuntu but it's more "windows-like" & a bit easier to work with.
