    I'm guessing this might be a hassle have two networks and switching between them?
    Best option for you is to use Network Manager or WICD (google for it) which both support LEAP and network profiles (for switching between networks). It should work for you as well.

    So, would this only entail installing on of those programs? and Would I need to compile from source or would synaptic do the job?

    Network Manager is part of the default installation.

    Instructions for WICD can be found here:

    http://wicd.sourceforge.net/download.php

    You don't have to compile from source of course.

    Any recomendations as far as the shaky behaviour?

    PS, How do I start Network manager if it's already installed...

    I'm fairly certain that it's not that silly thing running up in the corner that has no support for wireless profiles.

    Could be due to a number of things. I generally recommend that you adjust & tune the physical settings of your wireless networks. This has worked for me on a number of occasions while I was facing random dropouts. Start off with the default bacon interval and reduce the value. I cannot tell what the culprit is in your case, but you get my point...

    Come to think of it I think I know what's going on but I won't be able to test it until a bit later.

    Default Bacon? I've always liked a good BLT

    With a bit of Chili & Pepper, definitely!

    Beacon interval of course. Let us know what your findings are.

    If I run the command "iwlist scan" The result under wlan1 is "No scan results."


    If I set the Wireless Connection to "roaming" and then go to "Connect to other network" and enter in my information there. The icon switches to bars to show the signal strength but they are all empty and the "wpa_passphrase" command still doesn't work. I am really lost now.

    I know the network works because I am typing this message on my XP laptop connected to the same network.
    Startacus, what are the chances you have an AN Intel wi-fi card?

    Not very good I'm afraid. I have the Belkin 54g Wireless USB. I think it's F5D7050.

    Re: HOWTO: Wireless Security - WPA1, WPA2, LEAP, etc.

    wieman01,

    I´m still working on my wireless issues/connectivity etc. I would like some further input if possible.

    I want to use the knetwork manager (front end) for gnome, which synaptic states will work with gnome. The issue is that knetwork manager isn´t pulling any data from network manager itself. How can one make knetwork manager play well with gnome and networkmanager so they communicate to one another?


    This would be extremely helpful
