I recently downloaded Ubuntu and installed it. Every thing works just fine, but when I want connect to my wireless network, it says enter authenticating code. When I enter the code correctly, 2 or 3 minutes later its want authenticating code again. I even removed my password from my wireless settings but it want authenticating code again!

This is my first time using Linux.
