I installed Ubuntu 10.10 last night on my laptop and followed this guide: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=25683. I pressed my wireless key and it lit up, but it only stays lit for a few seconds, then turns off, the turns on again in an infinite loop. It can see my wireless network, but can't connect. One of the last steps in that guide says that I have to put my WEP key in hexadecimal form. I have no idea how to do that. The guide says add "s:" to the front, but that means I can't fit the entire WEP key in after. I'm at a loss on what to do and any help would be great. I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 i386 on an HP Pavilion DV1049CL.
