21. WOUNDED WINGS > Internet and Network Connection Problems

Internet and Network Connection Problems

If you haven't been able to get Ubuntu connected to the Internet (or a network), the most likely cause is that your wireless/network card hasn't been detected correctly. Other people have probably had the same problem with the same network card before, so it's always a good idea to search online to see whether you can find specific instructions on setting up your card. You're not guaranteed to find something useful (or intelligible), however, so I've provided some general instructions on diagnosing connection problems and installing network and wireless card drivers in this section.

Finding the Cause of a Connection Problem

There are so many different causes of connection problems that it can be difficult to know where to start. In this section, I've provided a few tips on how you can get more information to help you figure out your connection problem. Unfortunately, some of the information is quite technical, so you might find some of the results of these tests confusing. If that is the case, just make a note of the results you get. The information might be useful to someone in the forums or elsewhere, who could help you fix the problem.
