I am unable to connect to a wireless access point when the SSID contains an underscore in the name from my Ubuntu 11.04 laptop.
Not sure whether it is permissible to have underscores in an wireless SSID, however my Windows laptop connects okay.
It's a public access point, so unfortunately I can't change the SSID. I have replicated the issue on my home wireless access point.
Not sure whether this has anything to do with the issue, but when I run
iwlist wlan0 scan there are a number of results with
I'm going to see whether I can get the MAC address of the router to see which one is a match.
The output from
lspci | grep -i Network
02:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM43225 802.11b/g/n (rev 01)
Any suggestions (aside from renaming the SSID) most welcome!
