    another wireless question thread

    i installed ubuntu 8.04 a few hours ago on my laptop and i'm having trouble connecting to the internet via wifi. i'm able to connect when i have windows xp running. right now i'm using a wired connection, which seems to be working okay.

    i'm not sure my exact laptop model, it's a fujitsu, n3500 notebook, i believe. i read a bunch of threads and most said to run lspci in your terminal, here's what came up:

    i'm able to see the wireless networks in my area, but when i try to type in the WEP key and connect it doesn't log me on. i've made sure i'm typing in the right key about 30 times, heh


    thanks in advance for the help

    here's more information

    when i type in sudo lshw -c network
    Code:
    Hardware Lister (lshw) - B.02.12.01
    usage: lshw [-format] [-options ...]
           lshw -version
    
    	-version        print program version (B.02.12.01)
    
    format can be
    	-html           output hardware tree as HTML
    	-xml            output hardware tree as XML
    	-short          output hardware paths
    	-businfo        output bus information
    
    options can be
    	-class CLASS    only show a certain class of hardware
    	-C CLASS        same as '-class CLASS'
    	-disable TEST   disable a test (like pci, isapnp, cpuid, etc. )
