View Full Version : [ubuntu] can see wifi networks, but not connect

My symptom is that I see all the wifi networks around, but when I try to connect it fails instantly or continuously prompts for authentication (usr/pwd) if the network is secure. I'm at a loss, I've updated the kernel to the latest stable upstream .deb and updated the whole OS package to the latest. (it was a mini-cd install so the latest stuff came in the d-load during install) any thoughts would be wonderful:

oh and please note that this problem occurs with both the internal wireless card and a pcmcia card I have as well. the readouts below were run with both active as you can see.
