    Gigabyte GN-WP01GS WiFi Card Not Working

    Today I realized that I had connected to the wrong WiFi network. I know that I have used my personal WiFi network before, but I accidentally connected to the wrong one earlier. I switched back to my WiFi network, and the WiFi stopped working. The network I was connected to before didn't work and my personal WiFi network didn't work. There are other computers connected to the network, and they access the internet just fine. I can connect to 192.168.1.1, the configuration page for my router, but the internet is not working.

    The only difference I have noted is this: Before this problem, the WiFi driver I use was in Restricted Driver Manager (or whatever it is called, I am on my Windows partition right now), but now it is not. I don't know if this is a result or cause of the problem or if it is because of my upgrade to Hardy. I've got to switch back to Ubuntu to run ifconfig and iwconfig and save them to a new file, because apparently Notepad++ doesn't like the one I saved before. Just know that i(w|f)config is on its way.

    Thank you for your time. Please help if you can.

    e: Here is the output of iwconfig and ifconfig.

    Well this stinks. Guess I'm going to have to format, reinstall, and reconfigure. See you on the flip side!
