    I know it does, but I have been reluctant because I don't want to use a 3rd party tool as much as I appreciate their effort. I might have to resort to it though... It makes me furious that Canonical don't get a grip on it. Such a basic feature.

    Thanks anyway, mate.

    I must admit I really don't know what compiling the latest 'ndiswrapper' involves...

    Gutsy should not have such a problem. So I don't think it has anything to do with the package, but the driver, don't you think so? Gutsy works fine for me.

    Question Re: HOWTO: RT2500, etc. wireless cards [Gutsy Gibbon]

    Hi, I'm using a card with the rt2500 chipset on Feisty and I'll upgrade to Gutsy Gibbon as soon as the stable version comes out, but I have a question, why using ndiswrapper when these chipsets are supposed to be fully supported in Ubuntu? You mean they don't work very well in Gutsy? (Feisty's default driver is working like a charm here, in spite of the fact I'm using a smp kernel on a core 2 duo machine).

    It is meant for those users that want to be able to use Network Manager or WICD. I suppose that you got it working through command line only, right?

    Yes, I edited my /etc/network/interfaces file to my like and my wireless connection is working like a charm here. Thanks for clarify this to me, I was getting scared about the idea of using ndiswrapper

    Yeah, I hate to use as well, but hey, no choice. Thanks for asking, I have updated the thread and highlighted the purpose of this thread. It was indeed misleading.

    I'm using feisty fawn and tried this tutorial, followed it step by step, and WICD still won't connect for me!
    I'm using WEP if that makes any difference.

    Maybe you should open a new topic since this one is related to Gutsy Gibbon? Anyway, if you're using WEP, then it's fairly easy to connect to your AP; simply go to 'System>Administration>Network', select the wireless interface and click on properties, enter your settings there, then click on accept, check the checkbox at the left of your wireless interface (on the main window) and it should work.
