http://ubuntuforums.org – Hey guys, I just loaded Ubuntu 12.04 on my computer and I'm having some trouble. For some reason it seems like it's not able to detect wireless signals. I was able to access the internet with an ethernet cable at my fathers house, but I was unable to do it at my apartment. I'm not sure if this is relevant but I figured I'd mention it. I think my problem is fairly similar to the one found in the following thread, but I'm too ignorant to know the difference. :-/ http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1946445 When I opened terminal and typed "rfkill list" It said 0; dell-wif (Hardware)
