    @MrLinuxLive He says: The internet won’t connect via my computer’s USB adapter to my router. I don’t know what to download, and their website is telling a different story. So frustrated. Simplest thing, and Ubuntu can’t do it! (It took me 10 minutes to transcribe that)

    @JamesN345 you can switch off your wireless physically, then turn it on. by now Ubuntu will ask you to install the driver. just install and connect to your wireless. (you have to restart after install driver. if you cannot find your wireless then try the video’s way) :) good luck!

  • MrLinuxLive:

    @DenisVashchenko -I hate to tell you this, but if it’s a hardware problem, there is a chance that changing the Ubuntu version MIGHT not fix the problem, then again it might.

  • MrLinuxLive:

    @DenisVashchenko -Could be a bug because there has been many problems out of wireless drivers and cards this release. go back and double check all your stuff and make sure you have your passcode and ssid right.

  • MrLinuxLive:

    @DenisVashchenko -lolx :D I don’t do this for money. I have a question. Are you connecting to a network with a password?
