    All seems set. You should not have any problems in fact. You have a broadcom chipset, so this tutorial is of no use to you.

    However, you can try WICD. Maybe it does a better job:

    It says i am connected to my network but when i want to load a webpage it says it can not be found.

    Can you access your router using a browser?

    Problem is still present after installing 8.04. When my wireless antenna is active on boot, I get a Kernel Panic lockup (I have a screen image of this attached).At this point, the laptop panel lights flash on and off and a hard restart u=is required. Also, since the last occurrence, the lights no longer function.

    A couple of notes - when I executed these commands, I was connected through a wired (Ethernet) connect.

    You asked how frequently this occurs. Anytime I try to change my configuration to connect wirelessly to my encrypted network, or any time I try to boot when the wireless antenna is turned on, the Ethernet connection disconnected, and any form of encryption turned on.

    upgrade to Hardy breaks wifi

    I had my rt61 working in gutsy with ndiswrapper, but upgrading to hardy broke it. The output from ndiswrapper -l looks normal, and shows that the rt61 driver is installed. Can anyone suggest what to try next?

    TIA!

    Please post:
    sudo iwlist scan
    sudo lshw -C network
    sudo cat /etc/network/interfaces
    sudo ndiswrapper -l

    I don't know what's going on... What older driver are you referring to?

    Re: HOWTO: RT2500, etc. wireless cards

    I don't have any drivers installed yet, i made a clean install of 8.04.
    Should i follow the thread of the bcm43xx driver?

    Question Re: HOWTO: RT2500, etc. wireless cards

    I am wondering if what I am experiencing now in Server 8.04 using native (i mean non-ndis) rt2500 drivers is caused by a buggy support of rt2500, or by something else.
    Namely, I am able to startup my wifi card, "connect" to network with WPAPSK/TKIP, but the symptom is that the ACK led on my PCMCIA card is always on, which is unusual. No communication is possible between my laptop and the router, although my router sees the wifi card as connected, and shows the signal strength constantly.

    Suprisingly, the whole thing (same settings of wpa-supplicant) were working fine on FreeBSD 7.0, which I was testing recently - without any problems. Plz plz plz, Ubuntu devs.... make the Ralink wifis to work in Ubuntu... like they do in FreeBSD... Both Ralink and Ubuntu are very popular where I live....

    I will switch to ndiswrapper soon, anyway.

    Regards,
    Chris
