I am using WiFi Radar to connect to Wireless Networks, but it never connects me. I can see all the available networks, when I pick one and try to connect, the connection screen never goes away and it never connects.

Is there a reason you are using wifi-radar instead of the Ubuntu default network-manager-gnome Install network-manager-gnome package?

Wifi-radar was last built for Karmic Koala and may have drifted out of "works well with others" territory. I'm guessing that wifi-radar isn't playing nice with the DHCP or WPA mechanisms.

Hi msw, I actually saw Wi fi radar is some forum, where people suggested that to use for Netwrok connectivity. I will try your suggestion. – t3ch Nov 21 '10 at 13:05
@ msw, Not sure if it was the default network-manager-gnome, but I used the Network icon in system tray and it worked. Thanks. – t3ch Nov 21 '10 at 15:25
It's truly a shame no one has been able to figure out using Wifi-radar as prioritizing networks is unavailable in network-manager-gnome. – Elder Geek Apr 21 '15 at 20:26

Have you checked the routers you are trying to connect with? Do you have any other devices that you can confirm will connect?

Hi Nichod, I am able to connect to the same router from windows. I know I am giving an example of a different OS, but it confirms that router is working fine. – t3ch Nov 21 '10 at 13:04
