I am dual booting Windows 8 and Ubuntu 12.10.
It can't connect to the Internet on Ubuntu 12.10. I have not had any way to update anything for it to try and connect it.
It would be nice if I could connect, because I need it for my schooling.
If you are having trouble connecting to you wireless try going to edit connections. then go to IPV6 setting and change method to Ignore.
If that doesn't help try to find a way to install "WICD network manager". This could be accomplished by plugging into you network directly.
If you still have a problem you are probably looking at a driver error for you wireless network card.
