What is the networking setup?

e.g. are you using a wireless router at home? Connecting to an access point in a cafe?

Hi,

Welcome to LQ!

I suggest that you look at 'How to Ask Questions the Smart Way' to aid in the composition of a informational query.

I'm running ubuntu 9.10 and I'm having trouble connecting to my home wireless access point with my laptop. I'm going to do some more research before I post any other questions. Thank you for your time.
