    Intel 3956ABG wireless not working with WPA

    I have a Thinkpad T60 that I upgraded to Ubuntu 11.10 from 11.04.

    The wireless worked in 11.04. In 11.10, it detects the wireless networks available, and can connect to non-encrypted networks. However, when I try to connect to my network which uses WPA2-Personal, I can enter the passphrase, but then it won't connect to it.

    How can this be fixed?

    Thanks.

    Re: Intel 3956ABG wireless not working with WPA

    Hi, what is the name of the network you are trying to connect too? so I can have a better understanding of the settings.
    Thank you

    Re: Intel 3956ABG wireless not working with WPA

    Hi, try this please: Disconnect your wired connection then run these commands one line at a time and if it works we will need to make it permanent.
    Code:
    sudo ifconfig wlan0 down
    sudo rmmod -f iwl3945
    sudo modprobe iwl3945 swcrypto=1
    sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
    Thank you

    Re: Intel 3956ABG wireless not working with WPA

    I ran the commands, and then tried to connect to the wireless access point, and the behavior is the same. It sees the network, I can click on it, enter the password, and then nothing happens.

    Re: Intel 3956ABG wireless not working with WPA

    Hi, I have been doing research and I found some people had to change wpa2 to wep to connect, I recommend trying that and seeing if you can connect then.

    You might want to reset your router.
    Thank you
