I used to connect to a wireless network at the place where I live providing a password using WPA (don't really know what that is), it's been a few months since I can't connect anymore, the problem is this:

when Ubuntu starts it sees the network but keeps asking for the password and doesn't connect. What could be the cause? The landlord did not change the access point password and he's using windows on his laptop and works fine.

I did not change any network configuration file on my system ... Thank you so much. Luca.

Try removing your wireless settings and set up everything again. – Lekensteyn Jun 17 '11 at 11:44

There are many possible reasons why this could be happening. Have you looked at the Wireless Connection Wiki?

Thank you, I'm going to read that, though I was hoping for a little more specific answer... – Luca Jun 20 '11 at 8:38

Get the same issue, however by deleting the access point from Ubuntu and reconnecting seems to work, though it takes ages to connect. I still can't find a proper solution either.

The WIKI page is outdated and half the files do not refer to Ubuntu 11.10......… – pst007x Nov 5 '11 at 2:33
