View Full Version : [ubuntu] wireless disconnecting in 9.10x64

February 13th, 2010, 12:09 PM
I recently did a clean install on my ASPIRE 5490G laptop with 9.10x64 and am having some odd problems with wireless.

The wireless will suddenly drop and ask me for re-authentication of the encryption key which I put in. Then it will ask me again. It will then refuse to connect to the router.

If I hit cancel then on the notification area the nm-applet will not have the router listed in the wireless networks .

If I kill the nm-applet and restart it with ALT-F2 and run nm-applet --sm-disable it still does not show the networks available.

I know it is not the router as my flatmate who I share with uses a laptop with Windows 7 and they have no problems.

Any ideas folks, thanks for the help in advance.

I've seen something similar with ordinary 32-bit, on a different computer. There have been a variety of little Network Manager oddities lately, it seems.
