View Full Version : [ubuntu] NetworkManager doesn't recognize WPA Password (10.04)

November 23rd, 2010, 06:06 AM
Hi all,

I'm stumped and can use some help. Here are some facts and some output. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have a Netgear MA101 Rev. B that I'd like to get working on my Ubuntu 10.04 machine
I've installed the at76 usb drivers and can see local wireless networks using both "iwlist scan" and NetworkManager
I have a hidden SSID that I'm using w/ WPA encryption
The problem: Everytime I enter my password correctly (ASCII text) using NetworkManager, my PC thinks for a bit and then asks for it again

Some terminal outputs:

desenna@desenna-desktop:~$ iwconfig
lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.

wlan0 IEEE 802.11b ESSID:"MDS"

desenna@desenna-desktop:~$ sudo iwlist scan
