Hi all,
I have installed Ubuntu in my MacBook. I wanted to connect to wireless internet but I could not see "wireless connection" in System>administrator>network. Instead I could only see "wired connection" and "modem connection" only. How can I connect to wireless internet.
Your answer would be valuable for me. Thanks in advance...

Which brand/model of WiFi adapter does your MacBook have? You need to check first if Ubuntu recognises the WiFi adapter.

Have a look at - there you can probably find more answers.

Also look at as I suggested in your other topic. There's some information there about wireless networking with Ubuntu on a MacBook.
