After Loading Ubuntu 11.10 of the Internet on a Dual Boot option alongside Windows XP. It cannot find the wireless networks within range when the modem is within a Meter of it. When i click the wireless button in the top right hand corner the list shows
Wired Connection 1
After doing a test unconnected to the wired Internet i could open http://126.96.36.199/ , but not http://www.iana.org/ - This suggests there is A "DNS" issue - I've got no idea what this is or how to fix it.
