Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Open the Ubuntu Control Center and look for something called "Additional Drivers" or some similar wording and run it. It should set up your wireless card--at least, that worked back when I used Ubuntu.
@Wardragon8 -- you ask, we answer. DGAD if you follow instructions or not, but if you want continued help, show us you are using a wired connection and have done what frankbell and erik2282 have suggested. It's always your choice. Live and learn or quit complaining.
Dude, no need for that language here. They were just trying to help you and you didn't post anything back that suggested you took any advice that was offered. Which doesn't make sense on your part because the reason we post questions is to apply the suggestions given to us by knowledgeable people.
What do you mean you finally got it working? What did you do?
Also we can see that you typed that last post on a windows computer. So did you actually get it working?
