When you post again to your own message, it looks to us as if someone is helping you.

Telling us what device you have may help.

Wifi has a number of issues.
Like all devices, it has to have support either in kernel or you add to the distro. If the device is common, it may already be in so check to see. Maybe lspci or lsusb.


See how far you get by using these two pages.

Then if that fails see more details here.

lspci gave me "Atheros Communications Inc. AR9565 Wireless Network Adapter"

I know the Linux General wants people to help themselves, but I am having a very hard time with this computer...

Debian isn't the most newbie friendly distro. Pretty good but you may have to suffer a steep learning curve in linux no matter the distro.

See this too. https://wiki.debian.org/ath9k

We will see if we can't get you there. Might take a few replies.


frankbell's link looks good too.
