I am currently running a dual boot Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and have been unable to connect stably to my WEP secured WiFi, although I am able to connect to other WPA(2) connections just fine. In the rare occasion that connection is made, there is no internet access. I do not have access to the router settings as it belongs to the landlord.

I have tried:

  1. Updating to compat-drivers-3.9-rc4-2-su
  2. Blocking IPv6

But still does not work. rfkill shows everything is unblocked.

Could I have some advice on how to solve this?

Hope you know the WEP passphrase for connecting to your wireless.
Then follow:
1.Can you please delete your WEP connection from the nm-connection-editor?

Click on wireless  
Select your wifi connection name  
Click on Delete.  

2.Once deleted just try searching for your wireless from the networks listed.
3.Connect to that, which will ask you to enter passphrase.

Hope that will solve the issue.

I've tried that before but the problem remains. –  user166148 Jun 11 '13 at 10:44
