Greetingz!

Nice post. According to this How-To over here, just go to Preferences/Network Configuration, then setup your SSID, passwords, etc for your "wlan0".

Hi Xeleema,

I was wrong because previously i wrote that i was working with ubuntu 10.10 instead i had 10.4.
When upgraded to 10.10 the network-manager is showing the essid of my wireless network so i can connect.

Thank you for your answer.
Have a nice day.
E.

That's awesome!
Can you please mark this thread as "[SOLVED]" (use "Thread Tools", at the top of this page).
Also, if there are any "helpful" posts here, that helped you find the solution, can you mark them as such?

Thanks!
