I hope as a new member I am not speaking too soon:
Thank you for the welcome .. and I have no doubt you are correct re: WIFI detection w/ Ubuntu.
My first install was 8.04 .. and it did not autodetect .. so I assumed none of them did. My bad. I have always started out Ethernet connected since then.
Thank you again for the welcome and enlightenment.
