    Just an update to say that I got a wired connection so I can copy/paste now if that helps.

    [ubuntu] Re: Can see networks, but cannot connect

    The security key is indeed correct. The strange thing to me is that I cannot connect at all if I attempt to use DHCP. If I input an IP from the acceptable range, I can connect, but get no internet or...

    I'm using Ubuntu 8.04 with an AR5212 atheros-based wireless card. I have configured my wireless as described in this thread:

  8. [ubuntu] Re: hardy/Atheros lost wireless with recent hardy updates

    I had the same issue - I was using the madwifi drivers (.9.4) before, and after updating the kernel, my performance and connectivity went to ****. I've started rebooting in an earlier kernel version...
  9. [ubuntu] Re: new kernel might have killed my wireless

    Having figured out how to reboot in an earlier kernel (.16 as opposed to .18), it appears as if things are working now. Weird...
  10. [ubuntu] Re: new kernel might have killed my wireless

    I reinstalled the madwifi driver. Is there something else I should try and reinstall?

    [ubuntu] Connection Slowing Down Then Dying

    I recently downloaded a batch of updates using the manager utility. Immediately afterwards, my wireless performance went to hell. I get fast internet for a second or two on login, and then...
  13. [ubuntu] Re: Newbie Help: bash: "/etc/modules: Permission denied"

    Yeah, worked perfectly - my wireless connection now automatically loads "ath_pci" as the driver, which I imagine is the point of the whole operation, right? I thought it was a directory or something...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: Newbie Help: bash: "/etc/modules: Permission denied"

    Thanks for the help, it seems to have worked, even if I can't understand that linked explanation as to why. One question, though. From what I understand, the command I was trying to run was copying...
  15. [ubuntu] Re: Newbie Help: bash: "/etc/modules: Permission denied"

    Yeah, sorry about the whole not understanding thing. One of the things that attracted to me about linux was that even though it was very complicated (from a former windows user's perspective), there...
  16. [ubuntu] Newbie Help: bash: "/etc/modules: Permission denied"

    Hey all,

    I've been having wireless issues, and since I have the atheros chipset, I was hoping to use Madwifi to solve them. I followed the steps in this thread:
