I have recently upgraded from ubuntu 8.10 to 9.04,having had a lot of trouble trying to connect to the internet wirelessly, I downloaded and installed WICD.It seems to be working OK but it won't connect wirelessly with any encription,what am I doing wrong?
The router is set on WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key)and the password 8 digits long,on the WICD manager i am useing WPA 1/2 (passphrase)I am putting the same passphrase into the box on the WICD manager is this correct?
The wicd manager will connect wired,and will connect wireless but with no encription .
I have done a lot of googleing on this but I am no nearer,can someone please help me .
I think that I have found it on google,can you tell me the one to download,is it the one at the top.
