Intrepid... fresh install.
WPA wireless network.
Detects network enter key, tries to connect... doesn't connect.
Prompts with a security passphrase that is pre filled with heaps of letters and numbers. Change it to me WPA password and it still won't connect.

What does one have to do to get wireless working in Ubuntu?

Driving me crazy.

does WEP work well?

Hi superprash2003

No security works so I deleted (again) and re-entered the settings for WPA and then power cycled EVERYTHING and reseated USB wireless dongle. It started working after that. grrrr darn thing... grrr.

Happy now though.

Cheers for your response.
