View Full Version : [ubuntu] Wireless Problem on Ubuntu 8.10

November 27th, 2008, 04:35 AM
I have a hawking HWC54G card (Rev T) on a Dell Latitude D600 (1.6GHz, 1.25GB RAM, 40GB HDD). I boot with the card and it detects it fine and tries to connect to our WEP-encrypted network with the correct passphrase. It tries to connect and sometimes it says it is trying to get an IP address and sometimes it just won't connect, but no packets are ever received or sent (monitored using ifconfig and iwconfig). My father (a computer expert) has tried to mess around with it but has had no luck. This is on a fresh install of Ubuntu Desktop Edition 8.10 Intrepid Ibex, using Wubi (Windows-Based Ubuntu Installer).

Any help?
