I am using a Dell laptop (D620) running Ubuntu version 12.04 (Precise Pangolin). Although I can easily get onto free public WiFi signals such as offered by coffeshops & hotels, I cannot get onto the public library's Wifi here. This is in Hennepin County, Minnesota.
The status symbol at top shows that it is connected to the library's Wifi; but when I try to get onto the Internet, it fails to do so. I've tried "Add"ing the library's wifi to the menu of recognized wifi signals, but cannot seem to properly do so (it starts asking for technical info like the SSID, etc.)
Can anyone help, please?? Do I need to adjust some setting within my computer??
