    Exclamation WiFi Connection Problems with Ubutun 8.10

    Hello people.
    I'm using Ubuntu 8.10.
    I bought NetGear Router model WGR614 and in my desktop I have LG WiFi PCI-Card IEEE 802.11b

    So, I configured a WPA secury protocol in my WiFi network.
    In the Windows XP it's working perfectly.

    But in the Ubuntu 8.10... in the first time that I tried to use it, the WiFi connection speed was only 10% of total... ;-(... it's so slowly...

    But now... I can't logging in my WiFi NetWork... the Ubuntu does not authentic my PassWord ( WPA ).

    I already tried to found one solve in the Internet...but I only found people with this problem... the solution... I could not found it...

    Someone can help please?

    you would have to specify your hardware more exactly. Model of laptop or run some commands like

    Code:
    lspci
    in the terminal and look for "network controller:" to show what wireless chip you are using

    The open source driver only supports non encrypted drivers.
    Install the windows driver and you'll probably get it working I found this:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=801830

    And this old guide but I think it'll still be working if you follow it

    I see.
    I had found this old guide.
    I tried to follow it but... I could not have success in the configuration.

    I`m begginer in the Linux SO... and some peaces of this guide, the information is not Step-by-Step... so it's a little hard for me understand all the steps ( so many... )

    Any way... I'll try again follow all the guide's steps.

    But if you or outher person, that using this guide... can make a easy way ( for begginer user ) showing how configure the WiFi drive, please let me know...

    This problem is so common in the web... many many people that I found has the same problem about connection speed in WiFi networks.

    Thanks.

    I understand that it's confusing. It is for everyone in the begining. And it's really annoying when it's not working as expected.

    I can not tell exactly how to do in your specific case as I don't have time to investigate it deeper. But there are more general guides on how to set up ndiswrapper use google
    search for your wireless network modelnumber and ndiswrapper for example

    here is a more general guide on how to set up ndiswrapper:
