Getting Wireless Network operating in Acer Travelmate 2350 Using Ubuntu 12.04


Hi All,
I have taken the plunge and installed Ubuntu 12.04 on my Acer Laptop, Travelmate 2350. I have managed to install InProCom Inc network card,using IPN2220 driver.
I have installed ndswrapper and know what Terminal is, though what the commands are or do...I have yet to learn...

However, I have been unable to get the wireless network working. It recognises the driver and network card, but when I go to <Enable Wireless> a box comes up asking me to enter SSID and password. I do this and it tries to connect, (the aerial thing, reverberates at the top), but it doesn't connect, instead the same box comes up and asks for the password again. I have been trying to sort it out for months,on and off, but to no avail.

Your help and advice regarding the next steps would be much appreciated.
duggzthebuggz.

Sounds like the windows driver ndiswrapper is using can't handle wpa-psk encrypted network.
I wonder how it would do on a open unsecured wireless network.

Just to be on the safe side. Here is a command to gather info on your gear

Code:
sudo echo uname: && uname -a -m -p && echo lspci: && lspci && echo lsusb: && lsusb && echo lsmod: && lsmod && echo ifconfig: && ifconfig && echo ifconfig -a: && ifconfig -a && echo iwconfig: && iwconfig && echo resolv.conf: && cat /etc/resolv.conf && echo route: && route -n
Some other tips to help you on your way

https://projects.gnome.org/NetworkManager/
http://wireless.kernel.org/

You can also go through archived network manager threads and posts to see if anyone else had the same symptoms as you at

https://mail.gnome.org/archives/networkmanager-list/

Maybe the linux kernel supports your wireless chip out of the box and only nonfree firmware was needed without using ndiswrapper. Members here won't know till you post some command line info showing chips and drivers

You have some work and research cut out for you.
Happy Trails, Rok

Tx for your most helpful and prompt reply. First time I have used a forum like this too. I will give the tips a try and let you know how I get on. Funnily enough I did wonder about whether a secure as against an unsecured system would be a problem...

Sorry for the delay in reporting back...but I have been moving house and modernising it. Here are the detais you asked for regarding drivers etc. Please note that I have switched off the wireless for the moment as a box keeps popping up asking me to connect. Also, I once did get it working on my wireless network when it was open. However I have now secured it, perhaps that is the problem. If so, do you know if it is possible to install another, compatible wireless card and if so, anyone got any ideas?
Tx for your help. Please find information enclosed below.
