Installed Ubuntu but can't figure out how to connect the wireless


The situation and error messages: Vista-Ubuntu dual boot. Dual boot installed successfully with both OS working without errors, except the same wireless doesn't work on Ubuntu.

ping 192.168.1.254
connect: Network is unreachable



sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart

No Firewalls are installed (so I think that is something I don't have to think about).

Internet works fine on Windows.


Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks.

You may need to download the wireless card driver. Linux doesn't even know the card exists without it:

Is it inbuilt or a separate card? Even if it's an inbuilt card you still might have to. eg the intel integrated wireless on my dell needed the ipw3945 module from the intel site, but I think ubuntu would come with that by default.

Which wireless device do you have?
Just that little bit of information can get you on-line via wireless. Without that, you cannot get solid advice.

Wireless device info

Um, ah, it is like a ball-pen size a little antenna located behind the computer, removable (like I can unscrew it to pack the computer). The computer is HP Pavilion Slimline s3020n. AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core Processor 3800+ (2GHz). Data Link Protocol Ethernet Fast Ethernet IEEE 802.11b IEEE 802.11g. It is a built-in wi-fi so it is not something I have a model number or anything, there's no driver for it because it is built in (I think).

Computer (if it helps) UPC: 882780985063
