Wireless Network wont automatically connect ?
 
1 Attachment(s)
I just installed Debian 6 on my Asus 1000PE Netbook and I am having a hard time withe the wireless set up upon boot up.

My settings look correct (worked on Ubuntu 10.10 on the same machine) but no go . I have a screen print attached.

The biggest difference in the two set ups is I have to mannually connect in Debian using the root password where in Ubuntu 10.10 it takes the direction of the set up. :banghead:

All input appreciated.:hattip:

click on network indicator and select your network. It shows radio working.

Thanks for the response. It does not show active. I have to go through the path of connecting to a hidden network --> enter root password --> hit connect.

Then the next time I boot I have to do it all over again. :scratch:

Nope, in Debian 6 Squeeze, start the network-manager's connection editor as root:

Code:

sudo nm-connection-editor
then save your network connection details, remember to check the checkmark which says "enable for all users", then save it and connect... After that, this connection can be used by all users on the system - who are members of the netdev group.
Hope this helps :)
