Cannot Connect to Wireless signals with Ubuntu 10.04. HELP PLEASE!!!!

Hey guys, I am very new to ubuntu, barley got it today in fact, have my laptop dual booted running Win7 and Ubuntu 10.04. I haven't worked with the terminal at all so i have no idea what I'm doing with this. I'm having a problem connecting to the wireless Internet. It has the icon at the top but doesn't recognize any signals. Works fine using land line though. My laptop has the wifi on/off button on it but that doesn't seem to be doing anything. Need some help. Thanks

I would suggest that you check the Ubuntu site for futher info. It's one thing Ubuntu does very well: documentation.

Have fun!

If you can solve wifi problems on Ubuntu we'd better get you upgraded to "guru" ....
