I have used Linux for about 13 years now. Have also set up wife and 
daughter on it. I have tried various distros over the years, but I have 
now settled on Xubuntu.

I bought a new laptop for my daughter last summer and installed Xubuntu 
12.04 (an LTS version). She was living at home then, has since got 
married and so now lives about 15 miles away. She has never had any 
problems with wifi, or anything else come to that.

I use a desk top so I am linked to the router via a cable, so that works 
of course. I have also settled on Xubuntu 12.04.

My wife was running an old version of Mint Xfce so I have persuaded her 
to upgrade. I have now installed Xubuntu 12.04 on her laptop. I linked 
it to the router via a cable while I was installing. Now that I am 
trying to set up wifi I am being told that no wifi can be found. Looking 
at Google it seems that there is some problem with this version. Is that 

Can anyone suggest where I should look now please? Perhaps I should 
install version 12.10 instead if that works with wifi??
