Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I recently installed ubuntu side by side with windows 7. Everything works fine except for the fact I can't get it to pick up wireless networks around me, have tried multiple things. There are no hard or softblocks on, and linux recognizes my wireless card.

Any help would be appreciated.

I am total linux noob here by the way. Computer model is an acer aspire 5733z and my wireless card is an atheros ar9285.
