I've been having this very strange wireless connection problem. I have a zyxel p-660n-t1a wireless modem. I have also a dual boot machine with windows 7 together with a fresh 11.10 ubuntu install. I have no wireless connection problems with windows 7, can connect to my local wireless network and can browse the web via firefox. But here's the problem: With ubuntu, although I can get connected to my wireless network, I cannot browse the web for example. Tried pinging google.com for instance but got no response, not even the stats that say how many packets are transmitted/received.
There are two interesting things though: First, when I connect my computer directly to my modem via an ethernet cable, I can browse the web etc. Secondly, there is another wireless network out here near me which does not require authentication and when I tried browsing the web over that network I was able to do it?!
So in the end, I looked around the web for similar problems. I found some forum entries but the solutions were generally a reboot, which I tried and did not work. So as I am really having a headache here, I would most appreciate it if someone could help me figure out this problem.
BTW, I have an LG-A520 laptop with Ralink RT3090 wireless controller.
