I'm using a Toshiba Satellite laptop with a PCI wireless card (smc2835w using ndiswrapper) to connect to a wireless network (freebox router) but for some reason I can't see my network although I can see about 17 other networks (neighbours). And I'm currently connected to one of those networks (it's not protected and I know the owner).
I can connect to my network easily using windows (both xp and vista).
The connection did appear once on Hardy and when it did I was able to connect to it with no problems what so ever but the next time I tried it wouldn't appear.
I tried using "connect to other wireless network" and entering the infos manually but that didn't work.

Any ideas??? (Thanks in advance)

P.S: Could it be the problem that the name of the network starts with a number??
