We are going to need alot more info than that. "Linux" is just a kernel, what distribution are you running (including version), and what are your PC specs, especially the wireless card? WiFi is one of the weaker points in using Linux because most manufacturers don't produce drivers, therefore they need to be reverse engineered. These days there's quite alot that work fine (a few years ago you'd be lucky to get any working at all) but there's still plenty that don't, or at least not without some workarounds.
