Driver for wireless PCI card


Across the top there are 3 places/tabs: Applications Places Systems
Looked in each and nowhere could I find Network Manager

Am I being too literal?

It is not in the menus, there has to be an icon. Have a look at this screenshot.

__________________________
Thanks for the screen-shot I clicked on the up/down arrow and voila got it.
It identified the networks which I remember from Windows they were called 2wirexx, 2wireyy, etc
Also on the drop down list were:
The 2wirexx needed authentication as the others ??
Auo Etho (Ethernet Wired access to the internet) --Used this to reconnect wired which I disconnected in next dropdown
Disconnect
connect to hidden wireless network --> this requires connection Connection Name Wireless Security ??
connect to new wireless network --> network name wireless security key
VPN conn3ctions
Enable Networking
Enable Wireless
Connection Information
Edit Connections
The above is what I got and I do not know what to make of the choices or what to do with them.

Any further help would be appreciated. Also can you suggest a Linux/Ubuntu book on the ICONS, commands and usage.

Thanks,

__fromthebronx

Just click on the net you want to connect to.
Sorry, but I did not use Ubuntu for a long time, so I don't know of any books for it.

Driver for wireless PCI card

I Clicked on the wireless network I wanted to use.
Got "Wireless Network Authentication required" dialogue >> it required a KEY, I did not know what to enter so I used the password for the router --then appeared
A Dialogue "Unlock Login Keying" with message "The Login keyring did not get unlocked when you logged into your computer" It asked for a password for which I haven't a clue.

Do you know where I can find the passwords requested or the origin of these passwords?
  • Authentication Key required by network
  • To Unlock Login Keying

I don't know what the second is, but for the first: is it not your network? Do you not know what the keys are? Maybe you can find them in your router's control panel. I don't think Windows allows you to see what they are, but you might want to check the wireless network settings there (if you have a Windows machine available, obviously) just in case. Edit: Sometimes, the keys are on the bottom of the router, so look at that too.

The first key is your network key, you should know that if you are able to connect to the network with another OS/PC.
The second key is the one for your keyring, where the first password will be stored, so that you don't have to put it in every time. If you use the keyring for the first time it asks you for the password you want to have for the keyring, so choose one and type it in.

I think it will be the easiest to use your normal login password (ubuntu) for the second one. If I'm not mistaken, that allows to automatically unlock when you login.

Driver for wireless PCI card

Wim Sturkenboom you nailed it Thank you AND thanks to all who had the patience for this the dullest knife in the draw -- me.

For Wireless Network Authentication I used the Wireless key written on the router It seemed to accept this - the next Popup/request for information
For Unlock Log Keyring I entered the same password.

I also checked the Internet (google for Ubuntu Unlock Log Keying and got an answer:
"The keyring will get automatically unlocked if the keyring password is the same as your login password, and you actually type in your password in the login screen."
_____________________________________________________________________
THIS WORKED and I now have wireless Internet Access.

However I still need to learn and understand the specific steps that got me to this solution.
Two key items which go me to this solution (to be sure not complete but hopefully will help someone out):
1) "sudo apt -get install openjdk-6-jdk" and "sudo dpkg --configure -a" for getting CDROM ICON on the screen
2) Network Dialogue - keyring password is the same as your login password

I am looking for a Linux - Ubuntu reference book and would appreciate any recommendations

Use the "Thread Tools" at the top to mark the thread as solved.
