Hi,

Using Hardy on Tosh A30 laptop. 2.6GHz and 756MB RAM. Linksys PC card wireless adaptor using Broadcom BCM4318 chipset (sigh, yes I know!).

I've got a problem with my wireless connection. I had it working with the default network manager but kept losing the IP address using DHCP. So I installed wicd thinking that would solve the problem. wicd worked until the first time I rebooted, and it hasn't worked since. So now I am using a laptop with a wired connection. How crappy is that?

If anyone can help, I would be really grateful. Below are some outputs from terminal.

TIA

I am relatively new at this but I had the identical problem.I was using a Netgear adapter Wg111t and it was not supported. I went to do Wg1112v. Wicd worked once also. I went to the Synaptic
I think and did a remove. I found the network manager and did a reload. It reconized the adapter and configured everything. Even the se urity that was set up as WAP2! I has been working ever since. Hope this helps.
