    Wireless Connectivity with Ubuntu Hardy Heron 8.04

    Hi ...
    I am new to ubuntu.
    I am having trouble in connecting to wireless internet. after much brainstorming and searching the internet for solutions i was able to have the wlan0 up and running

    now my iwlist wlan0 scan list the rounters (including my own). the only hitch that i feel now is that wlan0 is setup using IPV6 and i dont think my router supports that.

    I tried different options of disabling the IPV6 by ammending the /etc/modprobe.d/aliases but IPV6 is not going away.
    Do note that when I use my eternet wire for connecting to Internet, it works fine (a bit slow though)
    Please let me know if you guys can bail me out

    -p

    add this to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist with "blacklist ipv6", then reboot.

    SD-

    thanks for the reply. well when i do that i am unable to see any IPs on the network tools window. blacklisting IPV6 takes away both IPv4 and IPv6
