    Wireless on Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Pro v2040

    I have a old laptop here model Fujtisu Siemens Amilo Pro V2040 and have no real problems aside from the wireless.

    It didn't work after installing and when I entered the BIOS and enabled wireless it then found my wireless and was able to connect to it but constantly prompts me for a password and will not load any pages. I presume it is having issues connecting hence the constant repassword entering.

    Is there anyway to fix this?

    Hate to bump but this has fallen down a fair bit.

    Bump and a little more info,

    the wireless card is the Intel Pro/wireless 2200 BG card.

    Yep I have exactly the same problem. Quiet annoying because I've really installed Ubuntu on a Fujitsu desktop that was on its knees running windows and it works perfectly. Can't get the wireless to work on the laptop though. Tried a different distro and had the same issue, though that had a problem running the mouse pad as well.

    Why don't you try loading the XP wifi drivers?
    You need the file that has an .inf extention.

    Load it through the "windows wireless drivers".

    This is really starting to do my nut. I left it for a while and recently came back to it but still can't get it resolved. Has anyone any ideas at all? Tried all sorts solutions from google but nothing seems to work. I'm about to give up on it.

    Please tell us what you did once the wireless was detected. What's the SSID? What version of Ubuntu?

    Wireless wasn't detected, that's the problem. The laptop has a hardware switch at the top of the keyboard and apparently it's this that's the issue. I've tried changing it in the bios but it doesn't work. It seems it's a known issue with Ubuntu and these fujitsu siemens laptops.
