View Full Version : [ubuntu] Netgear WG 111v2 not working

December 26th, 2008, 05:59 AM
I see a lot of people having some trouble with this from lurking the threads. Anyways, I have an ubunut server (8.10) that I'm trying to set up as a print server. I can't seem to get the darn wireless to work. Any help would be much appreciated.


iwconfig gives me this (shorthand)

wlan0 IEEE 802.11bg ESSID:""
Mode:Managed Frequency:2.41 GHz Access Point: Not-Associated
Tx-Power=0 dBm
Retry min limit: 7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:2352 B
Power Management: off

and everything else is zero (typed that all by hand, no copy paste...)

it recognizes it with lsusb, but won't connect.

When I connect it to my laptop it takes my signal strength down to 1 bar, but I'm not sure if it works because I have wireless there.

any pointers?
