Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have installed Ubuntu 10.10 on the same machine as my windows setup.

However, it will not connect to my wireless network. It can see its there, it can attempt to connect, yet it will never connect. It will keep bringing up the password prompt everyso often.

I have tried turning my security to WEP, I ended up turning it back to WPA2. It is set to AES (noted a few threads on google about that).

Can you assist? I would love to dive into Ubuntu, but without the internet its pointless.

Can you open System / Administration / System log and look for relevant lines in the end while you are trying to connect? –  ulidtko Jan 19 '11 at 8:52
    
done. also put some commands and there results. –  azz0r Jan 19 '11 at 9:22
    
I'm afraid that doesn't tell us what the wireless network hardware is. If it's a built-in or PCI network card, please paste in the output of lspci. If it's a USB dongle, then paste in the output of lsusb. If it's a laptop, tell us its make and model too please. –  Oli Jan 19 '11 at 9:52
    
Its r8168 (realtek) –  azz0r Jan 19 '11 at 9:55

According to the MAC address it's a chip from AzureWave (USB dongle). –  htorque Jan 19 '11 at 12:24

1 Answer 1

While this May not completely Answer your Question, I have a Desktop box with a Similar realtek chip set, that also by MAC says Azure wave, The advice i can give is it works in 11.04 and 11.10, so my guess is its a Kernel/driver issue
