I've just installed Xubuntu for the first time and am trying to set up a wireless connection, configuring the connection in Terminal, as I can't see the network icon in the desktop.
I want to configure a wlan0 connection but unsure how to do this.
When I run a ifconfig, I get this: Ifconfig

I managed to sort the wlan0 out but now i get the error ""Set Encode" (8B2A)". After research online, I dont think you can connect to a WPA/WPA2 network by using the iwconfig.
alan@alan-TravelMate-2420:~$ iwconfig lo no wireless extensions. wlan0 IEEE 802.11 ESSID:"VM1579855" Mode:Managed Access Point: Not-Associated Tx-Power=20 dBm Retry short limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off Power Management:off enp6s7 no wireless extensions. alan@alan-TravelMate-2420:~$ sudo iwconfig wlan0 key s:password [sudo] password for alan: Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A) : SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument.
Thanks all in advance :)
