Hi, after a long three day search and no progress I decided to post...so bear with me please:
I have installed Ubuntu HH and I am using a Netgear wg111v2. usb adapter to connect to my Comtrend ADSL router.After installing the driver for the wg111v2 I still had no luck, after reading a lot of posts with related problems I got the solution which was to install Wicd manager. Ta dah! Now I have my computer connected to the netgear usb adpater which has detected my router and connected.SUCCESS...this is where the problem begins, now I have a DSL provider which I need to connect to AFTER I connect to the router (can't change anything in this router-its unsecure (diff. problem))
I want to connect to the internet using the given username and password now, everything else is great: USB adapter works and gives me connection to the router.
In a lot of diff. posts I have read, people with the same problem tend to get answers which don't relate to the problem because the people dont understand the situation completely that we need to connect to the wireless router FIRST and THEN connect to the internet using the DSL providers given username and password. In Windows, this is done using by setting up wireless (PUBLIC NETWORK) and then using "dial-up" to connect to the PRIVATE NETWORK (i.e, the dsl provider)
If anyone can help solve this problem, I appreciate the effort and sorry for the long explaination.
