It should actually be called GNU/Linux or GNU+Linux:
Here's a link if you're not familiar with the GNU operating system (the
link is rather long, so line wrapping in your email client may break the
link -- just copy each portion & re-create the entire thing.)

I do hope that you'll be able to get rid of the proprietary software in
your life. This speech from Bradley M. Kuhn provides a great
introduction to free software if you're not familiar with it.

It would be helpful if you could provide more details. All that I can
tell from this is that you are having problems. Can you please provide
some further specifics? Just as a start, the make/model of your
computer? How are you connecting to the internet? What with hardware?
How is it connected? What happens when you try to connect to the
internet (any sights, sounds, or smells?) Does this only happen in
gNewSense or with the other operating systems that you're using as well?
Anything else you can think of to include is helpful. The more
information the better. You can never say too much. :)
