Ubuntu on laptop partition won't connect!

Specs: Windows 7
Hello, I have a Sony Viao PCG-71312L laptop that has Windows 7, 64-bit as OS. I loaded on Ubuntu as want to learn more about Linux. The wireless locator finds the signal but won't connect.
It says "ethos" and then when you click from there I don't get through. Just seems to keep looking forever, then says after 3 minutes can't connect.
It could be I need a specific driver for the Ethernos wireless device, I am not sure. Further I am had a hacking where I had to change wireless settings so I may have done it myself. I am able to connect on my Windows 7 wireless network account but not the Linux one. I tried deleting the account on the Linux Ubuntu that shows up but this didn't work. May have made worse.

Is this on my wireless device side, meaning I need to change/get password ect or the Ubuntu side where it's some type of common problem. Do I need to access through the router web page? Incidentally that's blocked for me too.
Help or reading material links also appreciated.
Thank you so much!

Eth0 is the wired port. Frequently the default wireless driver is wrong. Probably the easiest is to connect wired and find and install the correct driver.
