    Can you please give the specifics as to what make/model of notebook you are using and which distro you installed?

    can you display the result of each of these 3 commands (from a console/terminal):
    dmesg | grep -i wireless
    cat /proc/net/wireless
    ifconfig -a

    What distribution did you install?
