Cannot used wifi connection

Good day.
What is the operating system? Is it windows vista,7 or XP?
To check if you can connect wireless, please make sure that you have a wireless adapter/card properly installed on your notebook. To do this, please follow the steps below.
For Windows Vista and Windows 7
1.Click Start>Computer>System Properties>Device Manager 2.On Device Manager > look for Network Adapter and click on the arrow to the left 3.Check for any devices installed for example Atheros or Realtek 4.Please make sure that there are no yellow question marks,or punctuation marks on the device listed.

I have installed new windows 7 professional custom mode but now i m having problem that when i connect pendrives and i right click on it more than once then its not esponding and i have to again restart...

Im guessing that your explorer.exe actually freezes up. This may be because you recently updated your NIT drivers. (your wireless adapter) If so you may want to roll back the driver using device manager. This happaned to me when I recently updated my BIOS on a HP notebook. I would check to see if the NIT drivers are up to date by checking the manufacturers website. e.g. I have the Atheros wireless adapter in my notebook. Hope this helps.

I installed Ubuntu 10.10 today. I would like to know how I can configure wireless network.

Welcome to Ubuntu :), first of all make sure you can see wireless networks so that your wireless driver is functioning properly, find the wireless icon in the system tray in the upper right corner of your screen, right click and select edit connections, select wireless connections, here you can configure your wireless networks..

Intrepid Ibex Beta

If you are using a laptop, yes, it is better. Mainly due to some more driver support for wireless and bluetooth. I do not think there is any performance increase, just more hardware compatibility.

I use ubuntu 8.04 Hardy on a PC, there would be no need for me to upgrade at this time.

Read up on what you have and develop knowledge and capabilities that will inevitably serve even better when you (also inevitably, but not impulsively) upgrade.

Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex Question

U don;t have to upgrade !
But if u do is very easy... when the new version is released the updater will ask u if u want to install the new version and will do all the job for u ....

Ubuntu 8.04 is a LTS version (long time support) so as a beginner i recomand u to keep this version becouse all possible problems will be fixed faster and u wont have to bother with them ...

Anyway is best to get info from u;re local/national ubuntu forum ...
