    Belkin 300 wireless router

    Hi
    I am new to ubuntu and having problems setting up my wireless router.
    it has identified my router, but it will not connect. It seems to be connected for about 20secs then asks for the pass word again. The router is a Belkin 300 which works fine with windows but not ubuntu.
    I have set it up inside windows via wubi. Everything works fine except the wireless connection.
    I forgot to mention my machine is a Lenovo T60

    The router doesn't matter - it's most likely your wireless card in your computer that is causing the problem.

    Can you please run this command in the terminal and give us the details?

    Code:
    lshw -C network
    Also, what version of Ubuntu are you using? If you are new, you should be using 14.04 as it's both the latest version, and the latest long-term support version.
    I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.
