Welcome to LQ!

1. Specify Linux distribution
2. Should be automatic on most distros.
Default driver module: radeon

You can optionally install the proprietary driver through package manager

Post output of
#lspci -v

Start the PC

copy the output of the command to your ipad and post it later.

For wireless/wired use the 'network manager'

And I don't have 'network manager' ???? It won't pick up nearby wireless connections .. It works via wired ?

It seems to me that you totally miss the point that Linux is not Windows. You may know a lot about Windows, but this is not Windows. Linux is not compatible to Windows, so your Windows software will not work (out of the box, there are ways), neither will your Windows drivers. If you are on Ubuntu use the "Additional Drivers " tool to install the drivers for your hardware, it should do the job for both the wireless and the graphics drivers.
