I am a newbie to ubuntu. I have installed Ubuntu 12.04 freshly onto my system and since then have been desperately been trying to get it to detect my wifi and connect to it. I have tried several approaches but none of them seem to have worked so far. Can someone please advise me on this? When I type in iwconfig i get :-
eth0 no wireless extensions
lo no wireless extensions
sudo lshw -C network gives :-
