Detected but not working.

New install on ubuntu 11.10 using coneptronic C54Ri.

As documentation says it uses Ralink drivers.... Any ideas why my wireless does not work?

$ rfkill list all 0: phy0: Wireless LAN Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no

On reboot, sudo lshw -C network returns network is ok. Hovever, WPA keeps on asking the wireless key

i'm connected from mobile device. Dificult for me to do it now. Could you edit it for me? Thanks in advance. –  jrosell Nov 21 '11 at 20:50
    
if you run ifconfig wlan0 up any errors ? Are you attempting to connect to a hidden wireless lan? If you are - try making the wireless lan visible via your router. –  fossfreedom Nov 22 '11 at 10:00
    
Now it sees SSID but not connecting via WPA. –  jrosell Nov 25 '11 at 10:14
    
dont forget to update your question as to what you have just changed. Does it connect when there is no security? How about WEP? i.e. is it just limited to WPA? –  fossfreedom Nov 25 '11 at 10:51
    
This question should instead be filed as a bug report, and as such is off-topic, thanks! Instructions here. –  Bruno Pereira Feb 29 '12 at 21:43
