Hi Guys,

I have seen users posting that 9.10 supports my Netgear wn111v2 wireless adapter - and I have attempted to add the firmware but can see it already there and I have also tried guide after guide for the last 4 hours and just cannot get it to work - as soon as i down eth0 and up wlan1 - no internet anymore.

VERY confused now any would appreciate any help, will run any commands and post results straight away as I refuse to come off the ubuntu partition til I fix it lol.

ok so - a bit more info on this.

I formatted - fresh start

installed Wicd as it was showing in there and the wireless network - but would not connect - seeing as I had changed 4000 things to try and get it to work.

a few dumps

ifconfig

Could you please post your solution here for other users (like me :))?

Thx in advance! markus.

Hello,
I also use a WN111v2 on 9.10 and although I manage to bring up the connection using WEP encryption, there are a couple of unresolved issues:
- The Network-Manager cannot establish the connection. I had to configure /etc/network/interfaces instead
- The connection does not come up automatically at boot time. AUTO <wlan-interface> mode does not work. When I use it, the USB device is not started. Without the auto mode, the connection is established when I log in.
- When other users log in first, the connection is not established.

Any help would be appreciated.

egghead0 what did you do to get it working? I have been fighting the same problem for a week and getting frustrated. Any help would be appreciated.
