    I'm sure this has been answered somewhere. Use search or try this:
    ifconfig wlan0 up
    then use wicd to setup wireless or manually through iwconfig and ifconfig

    for me i had to open a terminal and type:
    wicd

    then i went through the BT menu >> Internet >> Wicd to get it to open

    For the fifth time today I think:

    Actually from now on I'm putting it in my signature and I'm just gonna tell me to check my signature.

    It's OK.
    I read all topic so try some command

    Code:
     adtechniques@Xpc:~$ iwconfig
    lo        no wireless extensions.
    
    eth0      no wireless extensions.
    
    wmaster0  no wireless extensions.
    
    wlan0     IEEE 802.11bg  ESSID:""
              Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.412 GHz  Access Point: Not-Associated
              Tx-Power=0 dBm
              Retry min limit:7   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr=2352 B
              Power Management:off
              Link Quality:0  Signal level:0  Noise level:0
              Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
              Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:0   Missed beacon:0
    then i try
    Code:
     adtechniques@Xpc:~$ sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
    [sudo] password for adtechniques:
    adtechniques@Xpc:~$ sudo ifconfig wlan0 mode managed
    mode: Unknown host
    adtechniques@Xpc:~$ sudo iwconfig wlan0 mode managed
    Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) :
        SET failed on device wlan0 ; Device or resource busy.
    Here, i don't know what messege mean? Anybody can explaind?

    I try another command

    Code:
    adtechniques@Xpc:~$ /usr/bin/start-network
    Starting Network connection manager: wicd failed!
    How to fix, search "Google", and try

    Code:
     sudo wicd -foe
    it's work.

    Now, you can use wicd to choose connect wifi network or use command. Read more here
