I recently installed Joli OS on my netbook because it was far too slow to run Ubuntu without lag and I could not get Chromium OS to work no matter what I did.

When I install Joli OS—which went smoothly with no problems—it boots and tells me I have to connect to the Internet to do anything but I cannot connect as my wifi does not work for some reason.

I have an Acer Aspire V5-122P-0643 and I must apologize as I am relatively new to Linux so I dont know most things. Any help is appreciated I need the netbook for school and I need Internet and it does not have an ethernet port.

Also I dont know if it will help but this is the same reason Chromium OS won't work it also will not allow me to use wifi but on Ubuntu my wifi works.

The Arch Wiki has an excellent step-by-step guide to Wireless setup: once you establish what card your machine uses, load the driver and manually test it. –  jasonwryan Oct 3 '13 at 21:04
