I need your help. I downloaded Linux gos yesterday and it setup really easily on my computer. Wifi has never worked on it though. It does not even register that there is a network nearby? Can anyone help? Thanks.

Have you verified that the correct drivers for you card have been loaded through lsmod? I think your issue may be from using a broadcom card which requires ndiswrapper and windows drivers.

3. The wireless card you use and chipset it has.
4. Which driver you are using (if you know).
