what's the output from
Code: [Select]
iwconfig

[EDIT]

After doing the above, and whilst still connected via an ethernet cable, run these commands in sequence
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get upgrade
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
once that has finished, REBOOT

Once rebooted, post the output from:
Code: [Select]
uname -a
and
Code: [Select]
sudo lshw -C network

is that your network (ZyXEL_8E20) ?

Can you connect to it ?

and if so, does it survive a reboot ?

Okay that looks like wireless is working, just that it's not connected.

Right-click on the networkmanager icon (by the clock) and select "Edit Connections"

If there is a WiFi connection listed called "ZyXEL_8E20", click on it to highlight it, then click the "Delete" button.

Click the "Close" button.

Now normal (left) click the networkmanager icon (by the clock) and in the list of networks click on "ZyXEL_8E20" .. you should be prompted for your wireless password .. enter it and click "Connect".

Wireless password? Is this a feature of the router ZyXEL_8E20? I have a wi-fi  key, WPS pin, IP address, User name, MAC address and Password all to  do with the router. Have tried wi-fi key and Pin to no effect

Can you log into the router and see what passphrase was set for the wireless?
I assume the security is WPA-WPA2.
If you have tried the correct passphrase and still would not connect, then (just to prove it is able to connect) disable the wireless security on the router. Once established that it can connect to the router without security, then put your router security back to what it was before.

I've found a "Homegroup" password. That didn't work. The security type of the router is WPA2-PSK. I don't know how to disable/enable the router security.
