Wireless connection


Hi my name is Emily,
I have been working with linux for some time now.

My problem is that my laptop cannot detect a wireless network. I t can be connected on a wired network but not a wireless one. I really need help. I wish this can come through to my email. Thank you so much for your time.

if someone would be able to help you they would need some more info. this should be a good start:
Code:
echo uname: && uname -a -m -p && echo lspci: && lspci && echo lsusb: && lsusb && echo lsmod: && lsmod && echo ifconfig: && ifconfig && echo ifconfig -a: && ifconfig -a && echo iwconfig: && iwconfig && echo resolv.conf: && cat /etc/resolv.conf && echo route: && route -n
