How do I connect xubuntu 9 to the internet?
http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index ... 120AA2X4o0

I recently put Linux xubuntu 9 on my computer to get rid of the headaches of malware. Now I cannot connect it to the Internet, I put in all of my wireless info and it still won't connect. Thank you

My Answer

When you name the connetion - type the name as "wlan0" without the parenthesis. THEN fill in the rest of te stuff such as the name of the network at SSID and the next tab Security > WEP or WPA or WPA2 settings and you will need the password (security key) if using protection - absolutely recommended and you set that in the router settings online. Activate the hardware firewall of the router (protects connection not the computer) and then choose WPA2 as all else can be hacked. That is where you type in a password that is the security key everyone needs to get on the Home Network. If you use No Security, anyone can see everything that you do with the computer on ! The WEP and WPA and WPA2 are encryption of the wireless signal so no one can see what you see online.

Go to the Software Repository in Linux > System (softwares) and install the really easy Firestarter free firwall is my recommendation. You need a firewall on the computer as well. No tech headache, but the simple default settings will block pinging your pc for info and hacking in it. You will be running in stealth online by simply installing a firewall.
