I just installed Ubuntu 13.04 on my Lenovo E530 laptop, and found myself having trouble connecting to the company's wireless network which uses the
n-standard. I have no trouble connecting to
After roaming the forums I found an advice to install the
wicd network manager. I did so, following the instructions at Install
wcid network manager. After rebooting I was asked to enter my password with the reason that "Wicd needs to access your computer's network cards". But my password was rejected as being incorrect.
After roaming some more I think I found that it wants the root password. But AFAIK the default Ubuntu setup has no such thing. In addition, the failure to give a satisfactory password is responded with a complete freeze of the entire interface, except for the mouse. I had to Alt-Ctrl-F1 out, remove
wicd and reboot to be able to ask this question.
$ lspci | egrep -i network 03:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 2230 (rev c4)
Any help, in particular to my original problem of being unable to connect to an
n-network, is highly appreciated.
