Regarding your connection issue(s): again, you'll need to provide some
_reasonable_ details before anyone can help you. Helpful information:

1. Ubuntu release - 6.04 (Dapper), 8.04 (Hardy), 8.10 (Intrepid)?

2. Laptop type, wireless card, connection type (DSL, etc) and access
point device (DSL modem, wireless router, router)?
