View Full Version : [ubuntu] Verizon Fios not working?

November 29th, 2008, 02:39 AM
I just setup my Dell E1405 Laptop and i got my wireless card working apparently. I can connect to other wireless accounts but my own.

I have Verizon's Fios service and it uses an Actiontec router.
It requires that i use the essid and wep key to sign on.

Now ubuntu 8.1 finds it and asks for my wep key and it doesn't go any further then that.

Has anyone experienced the same thing?

BTW it works fine when it's hardwired it just the wifi that's causing issues.

anyone experience a similiar issue or have any ideas what could be wrong?

It's probably something stupid just don't realize what it could be..

Problem Solved..

For some strange reason if i leave the wep key blank it connects just fine.
Now my windows xp computer needs it in order to connect. I wonder what the difference is? Anyhow it works now..
