why is my wireless connection showing it has been deactivated?


I am new to linux and My distribution is Kubunto. My wireless Icon shows that my connection to my router has been deactivated and will not allow me to connect to internet or give me an option to connect with a password. I cannot find the application in kubunto that walks me through the connection process. Is there such a program and what is its name. Thanks from a newbie

Likely you just need to click on the icon to get to the setup for wifi, (I'm not an Ubuntu user).

Hi...

Welcome to the forum

First, please take a look at the instructions here, under "Wireless," to see if Kubuntu needs a driver for your adapter. If one is already installed, the program that may help you set up a connection is called something like "Network Management Settings" or "Network Manager." You can perform a search in Kubuntu for this application as I have no idea where it's located. If this does not solve the problem, please continue below...

Open a terminal and post the results of the following commands...

Code:
lspci -nnk | grep -i net -A2
Code:
rfkill list
If your wireless adapter is usb, then...

Code:
lsusb
Also, what is the brand and model of your computer and what version of Kubuntu are you using?

Thanks!
