So I'm trying to recover from a hugely failed upgrade from 11.04 to 11.10.
I can get my system to boot to console but not to desktop. So from the console I'm trying to fix broken packages. But I cannot access my network.
I'm on the live cd now and I can connect to the wireless network.
Here is my chain of events from console when booting without live cd, trying to obtain network access -
~$ ifconfig wlan0 up ~$ iwlist wlan0 scan ~$ iwconfig wlan0 essid "dd-wrt" ~$ dhclient wlan0
I should say my network is named dd-wrt, and it is unsecured
Do I need quotes on like I have?
So home come this isn't connecting?
