This question already has an answer here:
I've just installed ubuntu on a laptop that came with Windows 7 pre-installed. In Windows 7 I was able to connect to the same wireless network that the other computers in my house are connected to but I can't do so in Ubuntu.
When I open Network through System Settings I don't have a wireless option, the only two options I have are Wired and Network Proxy.
I'm trying wireless troubleshooting on help.ubuntu and apparently the driver is unclaimed.
How can I fix this?
