    cannot get online!

    My first computer is running win 2K and has a Linksys WRT54g router which works perfectly. My second computer is running Ubuntu and has an Asus wireless card installed, although I dont know if Ubuntu has detected this. How do I set this up properly - I have went into network settings and on the wireless tab put in the relevant mac address and ssid, although I dont know what to put in the bssid box. Any help gratefully appreciated.

    Afraid I cant copy the output (no floppy) but there is a large list of things like AMD K8, nvidia and the like but no mention of Asus or anything wireless. If its a specific output I'm only too happy to reply.

    hey geomcewan,
    can you check via the terminal commands:

    Code:
    sudo lshw -C network
    iwconfig
    if the drivers for the wlan are active; here is my output as an example, just to know what to look at:

    Code:
      *-network:0
           description: Wireless interface
           physical id: 2
           logical name: wlan0
           serial: 00:04:0e:c4:f2:63
           capabilities: ethernet physical wireless
           configuration: broadcast=yes driver=ndiswrapper+fwlan driverversion=1.53+AVM GmbH,12/28/2006,2.0.6.1 ip=192.168.178.23 link=yes multicast=yes wireless=IEEE 802.11g
    Keep it real. Keep it nice.
