trouble connecting 10.04 to a wireless network


What's up fellaz? I am evidently a linux newbie and inherently primative in my linux knowledge. I have been attempting to connect 10.04 to a wireless network via a speedstream 6520 router. Taking all advice thank you kindly.

You need to give us more information.
What wifi-device are you using? What have you already tried?
Please post the output of the commands lspci, lsusb, iwconfig and ifconfig.
