I recently wiped my hard drive and installed ubuntu 12.04 on my hp sleekbook 6. Everything in the installation went alright and I installed all the updates. The catch is that I can only be on the internet via Ethernet cord. My wifi just continues to try to connect and then eventually drops then continues to try. I know the password is right too. Can anyone help me? I also have Uverse.
