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
sudo lshw -C network
Any help would be appreciated.
