    Wireless wont work.

    Hi all.

    Im new to Ubuntu and cant get my wireless internet to work. I followed the Unencrypted steps in this thread

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=684495

    But i get the error message

    "no workin leases in persistant database - sleeping"

    at the very end. Any help would be appreciated but im thinking of going back to XP cause this is too complicated.

    It'll work wired sometimes and my connection definatly works as it works on my XP desktop.

    I have a Toshbia 2000 and im using eth1.

    What kind of wireless card do you have?

    Is that an ethernet card or a wireless card?
    Is it working? What is the output of the following commands?
    Code:
    ifconfig
    iwconfig

    Re: Wireless wont work.

    It looks like it's working, a driver is definitely installed, it's just not associated with the access point. Are you configuring it through network manager or manually?

    Re: Wireless wont work.

    It is not going to work with Network Manager as long as the wire is connected and you have an IP address, which you do:
    eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:00:39:13:12:a5
    inet addr:192.168.0.3 Bcast:192.168.0.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
    If you reboot without the wire, can you now configure your wireless?

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Ne...NetworkManager

    I'd love to see:
    Code:
    sudo lshw -C network
    Is this a PCMCIA card?
