Please be more specific: Which hardware exactly? Wired or wireless? What "stuff" have you done and what error messages did you get exactly?
Post as much info as you can, it will help us to help you.

By the way, welcome to Linux and LQ!

Especially, we need information about your wireless hardware. We can't give you help about that without knowing that.
