    [ubuntu] Re: upgrading from 9.04

    So I created a USB startup disc, turn off computer, restarted and it completely bypassed the usb and booted up as usual. I made a bootable dvd and the same thing happened?

    Any ideas.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for that. I'm just wondering if there is really no other way to get Ubuntu and my router to "authenticate" using the passphrase. Is it that Ubuntu only likes to work wpa2?

    Thanks.

    I opened up the preferences for my router. It must be oldish. There is no WPA2 or AES, only WPA. I tried it and entered a passphrase and I'm afraid it didn't work (although it did on my...

    I think I got it. You have to go to Configure Printer-->Printer options and then change the tray, paper type, paper size. For tray, I put it on 'automatically select'.
