    Angry Elitebook 8530w, ubuntu 9.04, cannot use wireless

    I believe I installed the required drivers since I can see the networks that are available. However, when I enter my username and password in the authentication window, it just keeps connecting for a few minutes and pops up the authentication window again. It will do the same thing if I try to join a public network that has no password (e.g. library). I never had any problems connecting to these particular network with windows. What problem could that be? How can I check?

    Regards,

    Philipp

    I just fixed the problem. The default options simply didn't match the network's configuration. Now that I can access the internet using Ubuntu, I won't have to use Windows anymore

    How does 9.10 further work for you? I also own an 8530w (although I have absolutely no idea whether they ship all of these with the same hardware) but I'm not really sure yet whether I want to switch to Karmic given all the problems I had with Jaunty ever since installing (just recently I finally got my system working properly, after seeing it randomly freeze for like three months, and I'm afraid I might be back where I started if I install Karmic).
