Question Ubuntu 7.04 Desktop : Wireless-Dlink DWL 520+ Not working :Help


Hello all,

Need some help from you folk to get my wireless working. Wireless is to be used for internet access through ADSL.

I managed to install Ubuntu 7.04 Desktop onto my desktop (Dual Boot Windows XP SP2 on separate partition on the same hard disk) with absolutely no problems whatsoever, partitioning included. Setup went like a dream, and took just about 15~20 minutes. Was really impressed how easy and fast it was.

Immediately, tested the WIRED LAN connection and presto, works immediately, and I have Wired internet access from Ubuntu right now.

Problem is getting the wireless adapter to work. I believe, the system has identified my wireless card, but it is some minor stupid setting I am not aware of. The card in question is Dlink DWL-520+ 22Mbps PCI Wireless Adapter.

I have provided the ESSID, selected WEP ASCII key and provided the WEP key as well using the GUI Network Configuration tool. I tried both DHCP Automatic and also tried manually assigning a valid IP. Both did not work.

The wired connection however works with DHCP Automatic. So, I believe the problem is not with my provider's ADSL modem.

Also, if it is any help, the wireless does work under Windows XP.

Searching through the threads, I understand one output anyone needs to help is the output of lspci. Please find the same as below:

Will appreciate if you guys can help me out here. Obviously, I am quite the newbie, so will really need some detailed instructions / help.

Please let me know if output of any other commands are required and I will provide the needful.

Thanks and regards.

Hi,

If you were presented with an option to provide a WEP key etc, it probably means it was able to pick up the network... If you are using regular gnome in ubuntu, you should have a network manager applet. I found enabling "roaming mode" cleared up a lot of issues related to needing manual configuration.

If you have already tried that, I will admit that I had some issues with connecting to my home wireless as well - it seems that certain security settings just wouldn't work (WEP among them). If possible, you can try setting up your wireless router to use WPA2 or a different system, just to see if it could be related to that. Best of luck!

i have the same problem, it look like the WEP key on the router needs to be Open System or Shared Key type... i dont know why, but any wifi manager i used under my ubuntu 6.10 failed to connect after trying to login with a secured wep key.

Hi;

I just got a D-Link WNA-2330, I couldn't connect to my WEP encrypted connection on the first try.

Fortunately, one of my neighbors keeps his network open, I just wanted to see if the card would work. So I tried to connect to the neighbor's device; it worked. I went back to trying my encrypted connection, I know the information I entered on the fist attempt was the same as the second one, but it worked immediately.

I still don't like that I had to do that to get it to work; but I can't complain now that it works as expected.

Good Luck
jer
