I've been trying to connect to this network for quite some time. I can't directly connect to the router with a Wire, but can access the Router with other wireless devices without any issues.
I had previously tried several other Wifi nic's but none of them would load properly.
Today, i went and bought a new (supported) Sabrent A111N USB Dongle, which said explicitly that it works with Linux 2.4 +.
I popped the Dongle in, and low-and-behold it immediately said that there were Available Wireless Connections. I selected my connection and tried to connect, but it just loops constantly while saying
Wireless Disconnected then attempts to connect again over and over.
iwconfig both show my device in a ready and working state. However,
iwlist wlan0 scan says that there are
no results found. I don't get it...
At one point, I could see the CPU in the DHCP client list under the router, but it doesn't fully make the connection (something about a timeout?).
Any help would be appreciated.
