Re: Geordi is a moron. Wireless setup help. RTL8187
Well, you seem to have a few conflicts here.
I think a lot of people have difficulty with Network Manager and so I would not be so anxious to get trouble working again. I'd suggest we work with wifi-radar for now.
NetworkManager which only contain the phrase "exit." I would like to get that applet running again
Your /etc/network/interfaces ffile look like it could be tweaked. I suggest amending it to:
iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet dhcp
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
Please make sure your ESSID is actually ktbug and not Ktbug or KTBug, etc. Wireless encryption will not accept 'close enough.' Amend your interfaces file as needed.
sudo iwlist wlan0 scan
Finally, let's ttroubleshoot your WEP key. What is its length?
# 40-or 64-bit ASCII WEP code has five characters
# 40- or 64-bit HEX WEP code has 10 characters
# 128-bit ASCII WEP code has 13 characters
# 128-bit HEX WEP code has 26 characters
If your key is ASCII, precede the key in interfaces with s:, like this:
When you restart networking:
do you connect?
sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
