I installed Ubuntu 12.10 on my laptop. I tried to right click on the right hand corner where the internet icon is, and it says Wired Network Disconnected. Below that, I see that Enable Networking has a check mark next to it. I clicked on Edit Connections, and the name of the wireless connection that I want is listed under the wireless tab, but I don't know what to do.
