    wireless doesn't connect

    Hi,
    I would like to upgrade to 10.04, but I'm worried that I won't be able to get connected through my wireles. When I run the 10.04 live CD, it detects my card (D-Link, DWA-140, rt2870), it detects my network, but when I try to connect it doesn't accept my WEP password and asks for it over and over again.

    I had the same problem when I installed 9.10, that's why I downgraded to 9.04 - which is what I'm using now, and which connects with no problem. I attached the output of dmesg when trying to connect with the live CD, if that's of any help.

    Could anyone help me please? I would really like to upgrade.

    Thnx

    Re: wireless doesn't connect

    Have you got a wired connection available. Also can you post the output of the command

    Code:
    lshw -C network
    Some wireless cards need an connection to the Internet to download drivers after you have done the install.

    To get a terminal command to put its output into a file use this format
    {terminal command} > {filename}

    It seems that there's a problem with RT2870/RT3070 chipsets and their device IDs. I don't think the problem is that you don't have the drivers. There's a post about it here:

    Re: wireless doesn't connect

    Thanks, Peter,

    Attached is the lspc output (and some others, just in case). The lsmod seems to indicate that the rt2800usb driver is installed (but not in use)?

    From other posts here, I understood that my usb card should work out of the box? I don't have access to a wired conection now (I would need to run out & buy a loong cable!)

    any suggestions on what I should do?

    Thnx

    Re: wireless doesn't connect

    Yes!!
    That did the trick. Just by blacklisting rt2x00usb as explained here:

    I Installed 10.04 & am on-line now. Thanks so much for the suggestion

    Now: stupid question: how do I mark this thread as 'solved'?
