I can't connect to the Internet.


I've tried many distributions and I can't connect to the Internet where I always have with Windows. Lubuntu displayed a message that says something like,

Wi-Fi is enabled. Use network manager to configure.

Not much information given. To begin with, have you used your network manager to configure your network connection as suggested? Have you supplied a password? Are you using wpa(2) encryption? Have you supplied the password?

you can try:
Code:
sudo iwconfig wlan0 essid 24PW5
sudo dhclient wlan0
it'll probably be easier to connect using the network manager menu if your router is using encryption (what error are you getting ?).

if you run iwconfig again it will show that your wireless adapter is associated with your router.

maybe dhclient didnt work because you didnt supply your wpa/wpa2/wep key. (there is a way to do that in iwconfig but i forget how).

you didnt explain what went wrong with your network manager menu ?
