    Re: Nework Diagnosis-Script

    the driver you are trying to in stall is meant for Broadcom devices, instead you are using a device from Atheros Communications Inc. the right driver is: http://wiki.debian.org/ath9k#Supported_Devices

    Code:
    sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude install wireless-tools
    sudo modprobe ath9k
    <reboot>
    iwconfig wlan0 power on
    ifconfig wlan0 up
    if you have still problems run again the script and repost again please. you just need to install the correct driver.

    Re: Nework Diagnosis-Script

    Ha, thanks!
    After running sudo aptitude update && aptitude install wireless-tools
    I get:
    Code:
    sudo: aptitude: command not found
    Do I need to download something from the wireless tools package link first?

    ehh.. ?? that's odd. are you sure you re typing the command correctly?
    try this instead:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
    sudo apt-get install aptitude
    sudo aptitude update
    Edit:
    Code:

    also I just double checked more carefully your script and i found out that the right driver is actually already installed (in lshw, even if lspci did not show it). My bad, i missed that!

    so the driver is not the problem in this case! which is better....
    can you post the results for this commands:
    Code:
    sudo iwlist scan | less
    and which one is your ESSID name
    are you able to connect normally to .an open(no pass/encryption) wifi hotspot?
    if so change your router setting to WAP or WAP2 only , do not use WAP/WAP2

    :
    i am sorry to sound rude but this was suppose to be a thread about my script in the first place (on how to improve it and elaborate the informations collected by the system), not a place where everyone post their results and ask for help, please . It's going to get very confusing for the ppl that are trying to help to understand the situation for each one of you. I am just doing a favor to Potsoil by letting him posting here his/her own issues... for this time only!
    If you have troubles with your wifi open a new thread (under "networking and wireless") and post here a link to it. I will be happy to assist you there and I am sure you will find a lot more help too.

    Sorry Fdrake I didn't realise this wasn't the purpose of the thread, I can message you rather than continue to clog up your thread if you like?

    Do you mean change the actual settings on the router itself? Or on my settings on here? I haven't got an option to change to just WAP or WAP2 only on my network settings.
    I can connect to BT openzone and whatnot, which is what made me think it was just the driver for that particular router.

    Re: Nework Diagnosis-Script

    from the scan i have 3 results: BTOpenzone, BTFON which are open and i think you should not have any problem to connect to them. And we have BTHomeHub2-22T7 which uses a mixed mode ecryption mode wap/wap2
    Code:
                       IE: IEEE 802.11i/WPA2 Version 1
                            Group Cipher : TKIP
                            Pairwise Ciphers (2) : CCMP TKIP
                            Authentication Suites (1) : PSK
                        IE: WPA Version 1
                            Group Cipher : TKIP
    mixed mode setting is know isssue in a lot of drivers in linux/ubuntu. you can change your routers' setting by connecting through the ethernet and go to the "wireless-security" tab and select either "wap" or "wap2" only.

    if you have problems post here please.

    Re: Nework Diagnosis-Script

    My only other security option is WEP...I'm actually moving house in 2 weeks so for fear of having everyone else in the house having to reconfigure their wireless settings I might just wait and see if I can connect to my new router

    But thanks so much for all your help fdrake! I'll probably spend the rest of the two weeks trying to figure out how to get my speakers and macbook camera to work
