You should identify your wireless card
Code:
lspci
Is the card recognised?
Code:
dmesg|more
ifconfig
iwconfig
Then you can google to see if there are solutions for your card.
Since gos is ubuntu based, you should find some pointers.
Please come back with more info, if the problem persist.

thanks for the guide, repo!

i was advised by many (from forums) to not go for gos since it still uses ubuntu 8.04, which is not as up-to-date or stable compared to the rest. i would probably come back to it, trying again in the future with an updated version. i am exploring debian for now!
