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.

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.
