Problems with Video (Optimus) and WiFiview story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hello, I recently made the jump to Fedora properly. I've used it on an off for ages, and decided to settle on it for my business/work OS.

http://ubuntuforums.org – I just installed Ubuntu 13.04 (64bit) from a live DVD on an Acer Aspire with Windows 8 following the directions from this page: http://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI .

[lubuntu] New installation of Lubuntu Quantal not picking up wi-fiview story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Until yesterday, my Acer Aspire One D250-1165 ran Ubuntu 10.04.1 Lucid. For obvious reasons, that needed to change. So I backed it up and clean-installed Lubuntu 12.10 Quantal from a live USB stick. It connected to the internet just fine when I plugged in an ethernet cable, but now I'm at a friend's house and it's not picking up the wi-fi at all. (Hardware)
