View Full Version : [ubuntu] wireless problem w/ DWL-520+, Rev B

March 11th, 2009, 08:12 PM
I'm using a DWL-520+ Revision B card in my tower, with the Win98 drivers installed with ndiswrapper (I've also tried the WinXP ones)

Whenever I try to connect to my access point, it will prompt me for the WEP key, I enter it, it'll process, and it will prompt me again without connecting, and after a few more times of this, it'll just stop.

The WEP key isn't incorrect, I've changed it 2 or 3 times, and taken off encryption entirely twice, to no avail.

Also, when I sudo pccardctl ident, there is no output.

iwconfig pops up


IEEE 802.11b+ Nickname:"acx v0.3.36"
Mode:Managed Frequency:2.437 GHz Access Point: 00:80:C8:1B:6A:D1

Also, I noted that the Mac Address listed under router settings is the same as above, except "D2". I don't know how that works though, so I don't know if that's normal.

My laptop connects fine to wireless, just my desktop has this issue.
