    ubuntu 8.10 and eeepc 1000he wireless problem

    Hi guys,

    This is really becoming annoying, firstly i installed ubuntu netbook remix and was unable to get my wireless to connect (at home) yet it connected to my university network :S

    i didn't like the netbook remix, so now ive gone for the stable desktop ubuntu 8.10 with the eeepc kernel from array.org

    I read through 10 or more forums about the problem, and fiddled with all sorts of settings.

    i installed the RT2860STA driver and uninstalled network manager.. and that didnt work, or though doing a
    Code:
    iwlist scan
    came up with results, of finding my home network, but trying a
    Code:
    iwconfig ra0 essid "....."
    found error for wireless request "set essid"

    so i've just done a clean format, and now have 8.10 with eeepc kernel

    I know the wireless device is Ralink Device 0781..


    i'm out of ideas...?

    Cheers

    Hmm, I know you said you know what device it is, but it might be a bit unclear to some people.

    Can you go to Applications > Accessories > Terminal and do the following commands please?

    Code:
    sudo lshw -c network
    iwconfig
    ifconfig
    Once you're done, post the outputs of these commands.

    Thanks
