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.
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.
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..
