Sure, wireless is supposed to make everything easier but the trouble is, you have to set it up the first time. It can be somewhat challenging setting it up on Linux. There are some steps you have to do before it can be installed correctly. You think it would be plug and play but for some reason, it requires a little bit more tweaking. Go figure. Eventually, it will get easier and it will become installed by default. In the meantime, you can follow this process to set it up.
