):P Hey I'm new to linux and ubuntu and know very little about how this os works. I'm working on that though happy to say I'm liking the community and everything so far but I'm having some problems with Ubuntu 9.10 I'm using 9.04 and Have had little issue's anyways here's my problem. After upgrading from 9.04 to 9.10 Ubuntu could not connect to my wireless network, When it tried to connect it took awhile then a message popped up saying that it needs the password after using the password the problem repeated itself asking for the password yet again this just goes on in a cycle after I put the password in. I had to go back to 9.04 in order to get online. I think it might have something to do with 9.10 removing obsolete packages when I upgraded maybe?. I'm not exactly sure any info/advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I know your name is Blue_Wolf but the blue letters make your post hard to read. Do you know what your wireless card is? If not go to the terminal and copy/paste the output of

lspci -nn (LSPCI in lowercase )

here, so someone can possibly help you.

I have a Belkin Wireless N USB Adapter Ver.4001

The terminal's not really telling me anything besides my nvida chipset and the Ethernet controller which would be realtek. I still have the box and stuff for it but I can't read the model number

Blue_Wolf,

If your wifi card is usb, try using this command
lsusb

Can you connect to your wireless router with other computers? Are you close enough to the router?

Sometimes when the router frit'z out it will do what you're describing, or if you're receiving a bad signal it will do the same.

Try power cycling the router. Make sure you're within range, no lead walls in the way, etc.

We'll get it working for you.

This is the same chip in my usb linksys adapter. It comes up but doesn't start the card for some reason. On my system it is like adapter is asleep using ubuntu 9.10. The ralink driver 2.3 from their website didn't help this issue. I am still looking for solutions. Following certain instructions out there I can make it disappear but not work. The driver from the ralink site, which I have to dig for; compiles on 9.10 with warnings, like stupids in programming.

I had a similar problem after upgrading. try installing wicd, this corrected my issue.

apt-get install wicd

I'm in the basement, the routers upstairs but it's working fine with 9.04

Run the code this way.


sudo aptitude install wicd

I wasn't asking if things connected to it before, you established that. I mean, are other machines connecting to it now, because if not, then you need to power cycle your router. It wouldn't hurt to power cycle it anyways.

Also, to test connectivity, I would try to connect very close to the router, with nothing obstructing your path.

Hmm, it doesn't give us too much info regarding your wifi card.

Try
lsusb -v

Look I get almost perfect signal, and other computers are connected to it. I'm not sure If I can install things without the net but then again I don't really know how linux works yet or ubuntu for that matter. Anyway to put it on a cd? I have to make sure I can get the net otherwise I have to use 9.04 but I have the cd of it I could use that to get back online. Sorry for the late reply I got extremely busy
