    Should i follow the thread of the bcm43xx driver?
    Yes, this would be an option indeed.

    I'm stuck, the device is (RT2500 802.11g Cardbus/mini-PCI), driver ndiswrapper is on , but I cannot connect to the router. I tried: router without security instead of wpa, kernel pci=noacpi, wicd instead of network manager app please help me out.

    studentz,

    Please issue:
    sudo iwlist scan
    Sometime this command does not yield any results if you don't add "sudo".

    Are you on a 64-bit system? Have you got the right drivers? Everything looks OK in fact...

    Re: upgrade to Hardy breaks wifi

    (((Oops -- I meant to post this as a reply to http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...&postcount=487 . I messed up and posted it at the end of the thread, so now I'm editing to add this note.)))

    Thanks for the reply!

    Now it's working, but I'm darned if I know why! The following is a listing of the output of the commands you suggested. This is obviously a lot less interesting than a listing under the condition where it's not working. If it fails again in the future, I'll post again.
