I'm brand new to Linux (without a GUI at least) and I'm trying to run a home server. Couldnt get a hold of a copy of 64 bit Windows for my server so I went with Ubuntu, thinking I could figure out enough to get it to do what I needed it to do just through tutorials and such xD.
So, during the installation of Ubuntu Server (14.04 LTS) it recognized my USB WiFi adapter and the PCI USB card that it was attached to, all went well! (It actually amazed me that it worked with no hassle!) But once everything finished and I logged in, I went to find my local IP address with ifconfig and it only detected the Local Loopback.
I used iwconfig, and it does detect wlan0. It gives me this"
IEEE 802.11bgn ESSID off/any Mode:Managed Access Point:Not Associated Tx-Power:0 dBn Retry short limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off Power Management:off
Its probably just something silly but I'd appreciate the help! Thanks!
