I have an open, unsecured router which I can connect to without any issues while in Windows.
When I am in Ubuntu, if I click on my wireless manager to see all the networks, then it shows all the secured networks around me but does not show my unsecured one.
I looked all over the place for a setting that could maybe filter out open networks and not show them. But I did not find anything. I do not know what is going on.
I often use the networks at Starbucks and hotels because I travel a lot. This is going to be a big problem for me. Can someone please point me in some direction?
I am using Ubuntu 10.04 with all updates applied and installed. I'm also using a Hawkings Wireless USB card. It uses the rt73 drivers that come installed default.
