Hey everyone -
I've had Ubuntu for a while but never really used it much for one big reason - no internet connection! So I finally got around to buying a wireless card and I'm working on installing it now. I followed some guides in the forum and was able to get everything installed using ndiswrapper just great. Now when I click on the network icon thing in the upper right corner, the 2 available wireless networks are available.
So I select the network in my home and it prompts me for the password and after entering that it starts to connect - icon changes and says it's trying to acquire a key. At this point though the computer just freezes up - mouse, keyboard, everything. Anybody have any suggestions as to what to do???
I have it hooked up through a wired connection now so if anything needs to be downloaded I can do that. The card I'm using is a Linksys WMP300N (PCI card) and I'm running Gusty Ubuntu (7.10). Any help? I'd really like to get this done ASAP so I can return the network cable back to work!
Thanks in advance!
