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'm trying to bridge my laptop's wireless internet connection to my PS4 (the PS4 has spotty wireless while my laptop does not), but every time I bridge the wireless adapter's connection with the wired adapter, the laptop immediately loses connection to the internet. Any thought?
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 need to create a hotspot from a wireless connection. I use an external wifi adapter connected to my USB port on my laptop as a source for network connection. What I need to do is to extend that signal to my peripherals (=android phone. not rooted) using my inbuilt wireless network card on my laptop for broadcasting. I've installed hostapd and used the AP-hotspot script.
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.
Okay so I just recently moved, and my desktop computer is connected to the internet through a USB Wireless Adaptor to pick up wifi. The connection is spotty (I will be connected with access sometimes, and the connection will drop later. Then it will come back). Therefore I wanted to turn my laptop (running Ubuntu 14.04) into a repeater/bridge for my desktop.
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
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).
