Once I have installed F11KDE (and I have), and I have a wireless adapter/booster, how do I configure my internet connection. My laptop doesn't want to pick up the signal.

I have recently just downloaded ubuntu 11.10 and before i installed, wireless worked perfectly in windows. Now that i have downloaded and installed ubuntu, i know longer have windows. I do not have a wired connection at my house, only a mifi, so my computer is useless now without internet. I really like the functionality of ubuntu, but need internet.
Hi, I'm new to linux, and I just installed Ubuntu on my laptop. Problem is, I can't seem to get the internet to work. I have a Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 (rev 01) wireless adapter, and I can't connect with it. I do have ndiswrapper, I just don't know what to do with it.
Does anyone have a solution that doesn't require an existing net connection?
I just installed Ubuntu on my laptop yesterday and it connected to the wireless fine. Then I took it to school, put it on their wired connection, downloaded some stuff, and now the wireless doesn't work.
At first it would detect networks, but not connect. I restarted it and now it can connect, but it acts like it doesn't have internet in the browser. Wired connection still works fine on it.
hello every body

I'm away on a family visit. The built in wifi antenna on my laptop apparently doesn't pull in the wifi signal i need to access. It sees other wifi signals, but it seems I need more strength to pull in weaker signals. (It's all legit and permission is there to use the intended wifi signal target.) I installed a Rosewell RNX-G1 wifi dongle that I had kicking ar
I have just installed a squeaky-clean new version of Ubuntu 10.04.1 on a fresh, empty hard drive. No adjustments have been done.
I have a Livebox-1808 for my sins and the wireless adapter (Instantly detected) found the signal. Ubuntu would not connect directly (defaults to WAP I think) so I had to do a manual install (Activate pairing, enter WEP key).
I have an old Gateway desktop computer which is now running Xubuntu. When I moved it to my office I installed a Linksys USB Wireless Adapter, model WUSB12 version 1. This was not accomplished without incident--I installed ndisgtk (I already had ndiswrapper) and changed some settings (which I cannot remember right now) but after about an hour it worked.
