I am fairly new to Linux and Ubuntu.
I have made a fresh install og Hardy Heron when it came out. It has been updated regularly at the latest on june 3rd as I have not been able to connect since that date.
At home I connect to a linksys router without any problems.
For now I am on a hotel in Norway where I have to be for some time. They have an unencrypted network where you are getting a username and a password.
I can not log on to the network in fact I do not even get the log in box. The network manager is able to connect to the network but neither firefox nor the update manager can acces the internet.
I have a pcmcia Belkin wireless G notebook card model F5D7010
It is in my 5 year old Medion computer.
As said it has been working flawlessly at home with WPA2 encryption.
The IWCONFIG looks as follows.
lo no wireless extensions
eth0 no wireless extensions
wmaster0 no wireless extensions
wlan0 IEEE 802.11g ESSID:"bhgjest"
Mode:Managed Frequency:2.412 GHz
Access point: 00:13:49:33B:6E

Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessiveretries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0
The IFCONFIG looks as follows.
wlan0 inet addr:192.168.17.206
up broadcast running multicast mtu:1500 metric:1
The rest of the figures for tx and rx are 0
rx bytes:62962 tx bytes:11700
I have disbled IPV6
In network settings DNS servers are 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 listed.
The reason I have cut a corner at ifconfig is that I have to write it all on a borrowed (windows) computer situated next to my own.
I cincerely hope that you can help.
