Default Re: just loaded ubuntu.

The newest ubuntu release (7.10) supports plug and play for most wireless internet cards. You should be able to simply click the wireless internet icon at the top right and connect. If this doesn't work, I would recommend going on the ubuntu forums and asking for help.

By the way, I have been using ubuntu and I LOVE it.
