View Full Version : [ubuntu] [SOLVED] problems with atheros ar242x wireless

May 10th, 2008, 09:46 PM
sorry for starting a new thread. i have read most of the posts pertaining to wireless issues and am still stuck. i cannot connect to the wireless network in my home. I have an atheros ar242x. the wireless network i am trying to connect to also has a wep key. i tried connecting in Sytem-administration-network. by just adding the IP address but it did not work. i am still very new with ubuntu, but am familiar with some terms. i installed ndiswrapper after following another post's advce.the windows wireless drivers showed a connection of net5211. i am unsure of what to do.

That got me working with WPA on the same chipset as the OP.:popcorn:

I'm still looking for a WEP solution though.:popcorn:
