Can you open a terminal and enter:
Code: [Select]
sudo lshw -C network
hit enter, and your password when asked .. the post the output from that command back here.

It's a command shell, where your enter command syntax's and you receive outputs from those commands. You'll find it in older version of Ubuntu by going to Applications > Accessories > Terminal and on newer version of Ubuntu 11.04 or greater by typing into the dash "terminal".
If you try to look through Windows, you can see what the person is doing.

Just drag your mouse from the end of the output to where you entered the command. Then right-click > copy.

Yup, same way as you'd copy any other text :) .. insert cursor at beginning, hold left mouse button and drag to the end (so the text is highlighted), then right-click on it and select copy

then right-click in here and select paste.
