My netbook Acer aspire one is getting wifi signal and two weeks ago connection was working great, after I installed 12.04 ubuntu I couldnt connect anymore although im still getting signal,
I thought problem would be fixed by installing again ubuntu 11.04 but still it doesnt work either,,,
What should I do now?

What is the wireless card? Have you tried updates?

Connect via ethernet cable and update the machine
