I'm an absolute beginner as an [L]Ubuntu user. The fact is my laptop can find any wifi network, but when I insert the password (which is absolutely right, I assure) it asks again for the password few seconds later and it keeps asking and asking and asking...
BTW I'm using this same laptop now, but with an wired network.
I have another computer, a desktop, with Ubuntu using the same wifi network. I've already tried to restart my router and any device. What else could I check?
This is what I have here:
