Angry Can't Connect to any Encrypted Wireless Networks


Help Please!!

I am new and have finally got my wireless card (internal USB RTK8187B,
working with NON Password protected networks, but with Password protected networks it was always crashing the computer with Network Manager. I switched to Wicd, and now it simply does not connect when trying encrypted networks only getting as far as obtaining ipaddress.

Any ideas, and I have tried a lot

frustrated and not wanting to go back to Windows,

Mark

My wireless is working Hallelujah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

YO,

My wireless is working Hallelujah, and I wish I know how I did it more specifically what was wrong before, after all these permutations and combinations.

But this is what I did last.... I referred to beginners guide to installing NDISwrapper titled "My own Personal Ndiswraper Guide - Troubleshooting Tips Included" as I could not get a proper response from modprobe, and I reinstalled it with the intention to get my Linksys usb wireless card trying to function to eliminate another possibility. Well low and behold both cards are working fine and I am getting thru with both cards and with both Wicd and Network Manager. The odd thing is that my RTL8187b driver was installed without NDISwrapper...!!!!

Well I guess I should be thankful, and am, now let the games begin!!!!!

So I Guess NDISwrapper ROCKS after all!!!!!

Mark

p.s. my distro is 8.04, 2.6.24-19
