    Wireless Authentication Failure

    Ok, so I have a Zoostorm laptop running Ubuntu 12.10, and whenever I try to connect to my wireless it comes up and asks for my password (which is correct - I've double and triple-checked and other devices are connected no problem) and after a few moments it comes back and asks for it again - it seems to try to connect but then asks for the password again, and never actually gets anywhere.

    It's been connected before, but since doing an update and restarting a couple of days ago it just hasn't worked again! It's using the Realtek wireless driver 8723 (which was a huge pain to get working in the first place, but I followed the advice given on some of these forums) but I've been trying to fix this for days now and asked linuxy friends who don't know what else to try - please help!

    I just typed this into terminal and here's what I got - I don't know what this means though, or if it's any use or what I should do next.

    What happens when you try:


    sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
