I downloaded Ubuntu on an old HP Pavilion dv6326us Entertainment Notebook PC. I am able to use an Ethernet cord to get Internet but I cannot connect to wifi whatsoever. Can someone please tell me how I can connect to the wifi? The wifi switch is on and everything.
Assuming that you can see the network menu and the network you want to connect to:
- Click the network menu in the menu bar, and click the name of the network you want to connect to.If the name of the network isn't in the list, select More Networks to see if the network is further down the list.
- If the network is protected by a password (encryption key), enter the password when prompted and click Connect.
The network icon will change appearance as the computer attempts to connect to the network.

Hope this help.
