i have just installed Ubuntu v 8.04 to replace windowsxp on my desktop. As a result, i cannot connect to internet anymore. system recognizes wireless network and asks for the key, after entering the key the system checks for 10 seconds or so and then asks me again for the key. other laptops do connect via this key

I would turn encryption off on the router and get it working without it, then set it up step by step again. At least then we can eliminate any security configuration as being the problem.

with securty disabled, it looks like there is a connection. at least the icon in the top right changes to a bar chart but access to internet still a no go.

Can you ping the router at least? Is the router configured with DHCP? Also, check your DNS and Default gateway on the pc with the wifi card.
