I'm running Ubuntu 8.04 on my Lenovo T61 with an Atheros wifi card. I have the proper drivers. My machine is able to connect to open networks but not to closed when I put in the PW in NM.

Please if anyone has any experience with this I would appreciate it! I'm ready to provide any more helpful info.

I'm somewhat embarrassed to post this as it seems to be such a common problem with solutions for many in other threads...but I just can't get it together with my own machine!

Thanks for any help...

...another question would be, what other kinds of non-proprietary wifi cards are suitable for this machine that I have? Is that an option to me?

Well, I upgraded my distribution to 8.10 yesterday and now my card is working fine.
