I had to do this because there was a reply earlier but not an answer
and people seeing a reply can conclude its an answer.

ok I have booted the machine.
at the top right, the leftmost icon is concentric circles like a "sonar"
with a red exclamation mark.
when I click that I see:
VPN Connections » Configure VPN...
Connect to Hidden Wireless Network...
Create New Wireless Network
() means the option cannot be used,
no access points mentioned.
if I click "Create New Wireless Network"
and give the "wireless network name" for "Network name"
Wireless security: I tried WEP 128-bit Passphrase, none and "WPA & WPA2
Key/Password: I gave the password
it then says some_network_name Connection Established.
but if I try to visit eg www.google.com
Firefox says "Server not found, .... try again"
sometimes it says "Offline mode .... try again"
now when I click the sonar icon, it shows some_network_name as well, and to
a television icon with a sonar image, a sonar icon with a padlock,
but it doesnt show the list I get of other peoples modems which appears
on Windows (there are 2 others currently if I use the Windows laptop)
with Configure VPN, I am not sure what the values are, eg
what is BSSID?
what is Mac address? is this the MAC: number written on the modem?
what is Mode: ?
on Ubuntu sometimes a "Wireless Network Authentication Required" requester
I click "connect" and still I cannot visit URLs with Firefox.
