Hey I could use some help reconnecting to a wifi unencrypted at a local cafe. I did something and it stopped working even though the signal is still good and everyone elses connection works just fine. I know my wifi signal works and does connect at other locals. But I would really like to get this one up again, it my favorite cafe!
What I've tried: re-installing 8.04, running a command; sudo iwilist eth1 scan with results that say that the interface doesn't support scanning.
I also ran /sbin/ifconfig-a to get a list of devices and names. That worked worked but I haven't a clue what to do with it. P_Quarles said to replace eth1 with the wireless devices name, but I don't know how to do that either. I've just been using Ubuntu 8.04 for a month now.
results from /sbin/ifconfig-a

Anyhelp would be great because the next step I'm going to try is the aircrack-ng.
