    Multiple Wireless Problems

    Since I have started to use Ubuntu 9.10, I have had multiple wireless connection troubles. First of all, it says the signal is 2 bars, when in fact my router is right next to me as of right now. Second of all, when I try to connect to it, it asks for my password 3 times, then says disconnected. I'm on a hardwire right now, it's across my keyboard, and I'm in a tangled mess. It's quite annoying and this is giving me a major headache, please, help me out.

    Sounds like your password, or the security you chose, is incorrect.

    The number of bars is sort of arbitrary, and doesn't necessarily reflect any specific signal strength.

    You can try installing the backports package but I had many wireless issues and after that I could connect but would get the wireless randomly dropping very often. The only way I could fix it was to install 9.04 and then upgrade to 9.10. Now everything works perfect.
