I'm trying hard to switch to Linux from Windows because of my engineering project. Unfortunately, everything is against that change!
- Before I have installed Broadcom STA proprietary drivers, I was seeing on NetworkManager and nm-applet only local radio-internet-access networks.
- After I installed Broadcom STA, I see my neighbor's wireless network (channel 11, WEP)
- Neither before nor after the installation is own wireless network available.
Computer: Asus Lamborghini VX6
Ubuntu: 12.04 LTS 64-bit
Router: ASUS N55U (A1) with newest AsusWRT firmware
Network: Channel 5 (tried also 10 and 11, both on 20 and 40MHz bands), WPA2 Personal, 2,4 + 5 GHz (what is not very important, 'cause the wlan card in VX6 is only 2,4GHz).
Network works fine on Windows, also through D-Link repeater on the other floor. Unfortunately, same network is invisible to Ubuntu on same machine.
I have tried some combinations with other GUIs but it did not work. Are there any better drivers for Ubuntu?
I need that network badly, but I'm an Ubuntu newbie, so I don't know how to solve that problem. Please help.
