So i'm a new user to Linux and downloaded the Wubi installer of 11.10. Unfortunately, it's been a month and I still cannot figure out how to change my wireless soft blocked to No. I cannot get online at all and it's really hindering what I can do with 11.10.

any suggestions would be very very much appreciated
