wireless help...


I am trying to set up a wireless connection but the system is not letting me auto find the router. I am trying to set it up to find that wireless connection on its on like a windows system would do, how would I do this and is there a download for the program to set everything up.

im running a Ubuntu OS I believe its spelled out Zorin.

    Zorin is a derivative of Ubuntu. What version are you running? What wireles card / chip set does your system use? Anyway, please open a command-line window and execute the following commands, then post the results here.
    uname -r
    sudo lspci

    If your wireless is a USB dongle, then instead of "sudo lspci", try "sudo lsusb" instead. One of these should tell use which wireless device you are using. Chances are you need to install a driver and/or firmware for the device. Once we know what you have, then we can help get you sorted out. With the "sudo" command you will probably be asked for your password, just enter it like you do when you login to the computer.
