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?
Everytime my laptop connects to my home wireless network, an icon appears in the bottom right corner that indicates my wireless signal strength.
However, today I was having issues with a wireless USB adapter I was trying to get to work on another machine. I called their tech support, and they asked me to install the adapter on my laptop so we could isolate the problem.
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

using windows i can detect wireless from any room in my house with a strong signal
but using ubuntu i need to be too close so my laptop can detect the wireless
I have been trying for several day to set up a wireless internet connection on my custom build. There is one problem, it doesn't pick up the signal while all the other computers in my house do. When I hook it up to the ethernet cable on my modem internet work fine on it. What do I need to do to fix this?
Yesterday we installed Lubuntu on our old mac. We performed a full clean-up and the installation succeeded. There's only one issue that we have, we can't use the airport anymore to make a wireless internet connection (or use the wireless mouse as other example).
Ok, I have an old Compaq Presario v2000 that recently had Ubuntu 10.04 installed on it. The wired internet worked when it was installed, but the wireless didn't. I tried to download the drivers for it and it failed everytime. I did an update thinking that the update might fix the wireless, but it didn't, it actually made my wired connection stop working.
