View Full Version : [ubuntu] Wifi Help

January 27th, 2009, 09:45 PM
Hi all,

I'm very new to Linux.
I've just installed the latest Ubuntu, and I have a D-Link DWA-556 network card, which is atheros ar5008.

Ubuntu finds the 2 wifi networks in my house, one of which has WEP protection and the other WPA, but won't connect. When I enter the password, it changes it into a long, indecipherable string of letters and numbers.

Please help! I don't know if I need drivers or what. Please explain everything in very basic terms.

Thanks in advance,

I've disabled my network security, but it still goes no further than aquiring network address. Please help!
