    Serval 1 wireless encryption does not work

    I have a Serval 1 using the ilw3945 network driver. I haven't been able to establish an encrypted connection to my WAP in a couple/few months now, when the ilw3945 driver replaced the ipw3945.

    Is this a known issue? Any idea when a solution will be available?

    Thanks.

    Hi.

    1. What Ubuntu version are you using?
    2. Make sure the wireless switch is on (it's on the leading edge of your computer, on the left side -- toggle it to the left for the SerP1).
    3. Follow the instructions below and reboot your computer...

    To fix your /etc/network/interfaces file, go to a terminal
    (Application > Accessories > Terminal) and enter the following command:

    sudo gedit /etc/network/interfaces

    This will launch a text editor with the interfaces file opened in it.

    In this file, put a comment (#) in front of EVERY line of the file
    EXCEPT for these two lines:

    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback

    Click SAVE on the text editor and reboot your computer.
    It should now boot faster and connect to networks more easily.

    NOTE:
    Unless you are dealing with static IP addresses (which is pretty rare for the
    general end-user) you should NOT establish a network connection by going to
    System > Administration > Network.

    Instead, you should connect to the Internet using the Network Manager icon
    in the upper right corner of your screen (the one that looks like a little
    computer monitor).
    To err is human, to forgive is very ... dog-like.
