Hi all,

I have a Dell XPS One 27 which uses the Atheros AR9485 wireless network adapter. When I run the Ubuntu live CD and type in the password for my wifi network, it sits there trying to connect, but never does.

The reason I am starting this thread is that every other live CD that I try, - be it Fedora, openSuSE, Sabayon etc, - on these, the Wifi works flawlessly, so it seems that in this instance that the Ubuntu distribution could benefit from some attention on this issue.

Happy to provide logs etc. How can we find out what is causing this issue? I recall from when I was poking about in the logs, the actual WPA authentication looked fine, it was actually the DHCP stage that was failing.

Let's get this fixed so that the next live CD does not have the same issue!

Many thanks
