    No Internet connection

    Hi,

    I have an old Asus Eee pc which I now use only to write a few programms for college, since the computer is so old and I barely use Windows I decided to install Ubuntu 10.04 Lts and to erase the Windows partition (the Ubuntu installer gave me that option, which I selected). It all went great untill the time I wanted to connnect to the Internet. The pc recognizes the wireless connections in range and even asks me for the password, I type it in and wait but it just won't connect! After a few minutes it asks to input the password again and the same thing happens, and this over and over again.
    Sorry for the bad English and I hope you guys can help me. Thank you.

    Regards,

    Gilha

    Hi, copy and paste this command in the terminal (ctrl+alt+t) please:
    Code:
    wget -N -t 5 -T 10 http://dl.dropbox.com/u/57264241/wireless_script && chmod +x wireless_script && ./wireless_script
    It will download a script and create a text file in your home folder with wireless information so we can see the condition of your wireless at this time and the Mac address, WPA key and WEP key are removed for your security, then reply back and attach the netinfo.txt file.
    Thanks

    Then you must "play" with transfer files from one pc to other , through Usb-stick.

    Goto this page http://dl.dropbox.com/u/57264241/wireless_script

    The script is above. Click in your browser File > Save Page as and save it inside to Usb-Stick.
    Transfer the file to your /home folder inside Ubuntu and the open a terminal and do

    Code:
    sudo chown username:username wireless_script
    sudo chmod a+x wireless_script 
    ./wireless_script
    Where username , replace it with your actual username in Ubuntu.
    Then transfer again the netinfo.txt file , that will be created, into working PC , and attach the file here.

    Thanks

    Re: No Internet connection

    I've noticed with the installations that wireless connectivity during installation fails (*buntu and Debian)... So, just ignore and continue the installation.

    During installation, seems to only like WEP (and not WPA).

    After install and reboot and login, easily connect to the network from the network icon and perform any upgrades as well as adding the language support...

    I also suggest either Lubuntu (or maybe Xubuntu) if you have a really old machine... Ubuntu using Unity / Compiz might be too slugish.

    Re: No Internet connection

    I tried to run the code on #4, but the terminal has the following output on the first command: "cannot access 'wireless_script': No such file or directory"

    Re: No Internet connection

    From the info you provided and after a search to Web, I found that this is a bug.

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...3?comments=all

    The workaround is to install the wireless-backport-modules , although I guess that if you install a newer kernel , maybe this will solve your problem.

    If you have internet through Ethernet , try to full update your system
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update 
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    and if a newer kernel installed , boot from there and test again.

    If not, then try to install wireless - backport -modules . You can find them from synaptic package manager if you write to search box wireless backport .

    In any case wait for Wild Man's response.. before you proceed with any of my suggestions.

    Thanks
