I have just loaded Ubuntu 10.10 onto a spare laptop alongside Windows XP Home as I am considering changeing over to Linux in good time before XP support is withdrawn at some stage. Everything is working out fine as I find my way around 10.10 with the exception that I cannot get a wireless connection to the internet. Hardwire connection is no problem and everything is as it should be but I have tried to connect using wireless, completing the procedure with MAC address of router etc but with no result. I am obviously doing something wrong (or not doing something I should) and would appreciate any help with the procedure and where to get the relevant information from as there are some terms in the connection procedure I have not come accross before. My router is a Netgear DG834G v3 and works perfectly with Windows so I am sure it is not a problem with the router.
Hope someone can assist. Rgds
