    Angry wireless unaable to connect

    I'm running 8.04. I did a synaptic update on Saturday and lost my wireless connection. I have an ar5007eg wireless card, set it up using ndiswrapper. I can see a bunch of wireless networks (including mine) but cannot connect to any of them. I am using wicd for a network manager. Any help, tips or suggestions would be appreciated...I need to get of this vista crap and really use my laptop! Thanks

    Re: wireless unaable to connect

    lets start from the beginning so , 1st off win vista aint so bad, i heard great comments on how vista make a great paperwieght lol.

    So if ur network manager see other wifi lan its obviously working somewhat a little.

    1st thing i would do is make sure all ur wireless setting are correct.
    open a terminal window and type

    if anything in there is outta place like ur ssid , wep key not present or anything,make sure ur fix that like so

    iwconfig <interface> <option ie key: <ur key here>
    etc etc
    once everything looks fine bring it up

    ifconfig ath0 up

    try it


    if u get a reply ur good to go if that doenst work try to see if the AP itself is seing you

    ping <or whatever ur AP addy is>

    if u cant get a reply from ur AP make sure ur setting match what ur AP setting are.

    from that let me know how it goes and we'll take u further.

    basic stuff 1st. the problem may lay behind the k/b ... lol j/k
