This question already has an answer here:

It's Linux and everything should be setup manually, but I'm new to this and need help in setting up my WiFi.

here's what I did. I installed ubuntu, tried to connect the WiFi while installation it didn't got connected, I thought well it'll connect once it got installed but it still isn't connected. I think it should be pretty easy to solve, something I forgot to tick or something

a thing to notice is that it says it's connecting for few seconds and doesn't get connected after that
