I have installed ubuntu 12.10 on a new Zoostorm Laptop, Intel Pentium DC B980 2.4GHz, 8GB RAM, 500GB HDD, 15.6\" HD LED. Ubuntu works a treat but the wifi will not work. Has anyone had a similar problem and knows how to fix it? thanks

We need some more details, like what kind of card, but generally the problem is that there is no driver installed. – kyle_hamblett Dec 31 '12 at 17:56

Wireless card Realtek RTL8723AE-BT is not recognized

I also fallowed user239558 suggestions and downloaded newest driver from here:
