View Full Version : [ubuntu] Um?

March 12th, 2009, 04:46 AM
Hi all, I've had Ubuntu 8.04 on my laptop connected to my widescreen tv and wirelessly to my Neuf/SFR box for a while now. I recently installed Ubuntu Studio on a friends laptop and wanted to try it out on my 5 year old desktop. I installed 8.04 on it fine this evening with a view to using synaptic to get Studio, but the bugger won't connect to my router using a usb wifi dongle. When my friend was here we could both easily connect at the same time to the net with the router, so why is the old desktop being a pain in the ***? I really only want Studio to play around with, so am not too bothered if the desktop doesn't connect all the time, just long enough to get it working, unless there's another solution? Probably terribly worded, but I've been up half the night/morning trying to get the **^$ working. Any help appreciated, thanks. Plus I can elaborate if needed when I've rested my brain for a bit.:D

It would help to know what USB dongle you're trying to use.

Also, please post the output of:

lshw -C network
