http://askubuntu.com – So I installed Ubuntu 11.10 32 bit to run alongside my Windows XP OS. It downloaded great and the interface works fine. Whenever I tried to get on the internet, however, the "Can not load page" screen came up. I went to the wireless icon which says "Can not connect (firmware missing)", so i tried to download the drivers I need. It shows I need to download a driver, but every time I try, a jockey message comes up. I have tried everything I can think of. When I plug my ethernet connection into my laptop it recognizes SOMETHING was plugged in but as far as getting it to work, I'm stuck. I'm prett (HowTos)
