    Not accepting password for wireless network

    Hello. Just installed Ubuntu 12.04 onto an old laptop (a Fujitsu AMILO Pro), and I'm having some difficulties connecting to a wireless network.

    The native Ubuntu network manager picks up the wireless network. When attempting to connect I'm presented with a password prompt. Upon entering the password correctly, I'm prompted with the password again. It never accepts my password. I've tried to muck around with the wireless connection's settings, to no avail.

    I've also installed Wicd Network Manager, which doesn't pick up any wireless networks (I find this odd).

    The output of
    Code:
    sudo lshw -C network
    is:

    Code:
     *-network:0

    Any help would be appreciated.

    First and foremost - REBOOT your wireless router
    Wicd Network Manager works so possibly a problem with your installation
    How were you able to download Wicd Network Manager if you could not connect over wifi?
    I have witnessed kick outs like that from routers usually when the router is attacked
    Alternatively set up the configuration manually instead of using DHCP and that will force it in

    Hi bodueko,

    I will try to restart the wireless router.

    I was on a wired connection when I downloaded Wicd Network Manager.

    I'll report back once I've tried the above.
