Good afternoon. I am attempting to trouble shoot connecting to a WPA network which I have access too. Whenever I attempt to connect to the wireless network, the little Network Manager sits and spins. After a while, it pops up again asking for my password.

I am sure I have the correct password, as other laptops are able to connect to the network. I have also rebooted this computer into windows, and have been able to connect to the network. For whatever reason, Linux just won't hook. I can connect straight to the wireless router via ethernet cable with no problems.

I'm using a Dell 14 with a Intel 3945 card. I also tried my Ralink USB card, and had the same results. I've tried the below with the following results. Can someone help me?

Update: Well, I can get my Ralink USB to connect now, but for whatever reason, my internal card won't work. Any thoughts on this matter?

I switched over to WICD, and tried connecting. Almost instantly after putting my password it, it responds "Unable to get IP address."

Again, any help you guys can provide would be graciously accepted. :)

I too have switched to 'wcid' and sometimes it is connected on booted up and other times fails to get ip address.
I"m thinking to just statically assign an ip address now (or try another linux strain)

going to try watching what happens when it fails, however im not holding my breath
