Wireless issues with Ubuntu 12.04 server distro Tags: Wireless Distribution Ubuntu Last response: June 13, 2012 8:33 PM in Linux/Free BSD Share sobaz3 June 12, 2012 7:39:49 PM So I setup my wireless for ubuntu 12.04 on my home network and the wireless icon in the upper right is showing. The internet is working just fine. I go over to a friend's house and I'm not able to see the icon in the upper right anymore, nothing is showing up... How do I connect to a different network that isn't already configured on my machine. How do I change settings (say I change my PW for my router) for my wireless settings in Ubuntu?

Yep it was switched on. I installed it because I want to set up a private FTP server.
