I am in an RV Park and I cannot get my computer to connect to the Park's wireless. I am using a Linksys WPC55AG v 1.2 Wireless A+G adapter.
The computer is Dell Latitude D800.
I don't normally have any trouble with connections. I can't identify anything abnormal about the results of iwconfig, below.

My wife is sitting here happily on the internet. She has a Dell Inspiron 1525 with built-in adapter.

Both computers are using Ubuntu 9.04. Code and Results are below.

Please help!!!!

Thanks in advance,

Rick P

The "Auto Connector" thingee won't connect so I tried the following:

The following is the result of CODE:

sudo iwconfig wlan0 freq 2.462G ( OR iwconfig essid "2WIRE779" OR iwconfig ap 00:1B:5B:52:AD:19)
sudo killall dhclient
sudo dhclient wlan0

..........The RESULTS are all generally the same I'm asleep .............

There is already a pid file /var/run/dhclient.pid with pid 8736
removed stale PID file
