I have an ASUS ul30vt laptop with Ubuntu (and Windows). At home i have not problems connecting to our wireless network, but on my school after the holidays they have changed the network and when i try to login it just keeps trying, but never succeeds. I am dual-booting and on windows it is not problem to connect to the schools wifi.

I find it strange that it works at home but not on the school. What might be the reason for that?

I'm using the Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter

Can you give some details on the type of wireless networks you have at home and at school? This sounds like a WPA compatibility problem. –  tricasse Sep 5 '12 at 12:35
