Dell Wireless Lan 1370 - No connection
I'm having trouble getting my wireless to work on my Dell Inspiron 2200.
I had no problem installing the driver through "Windows Wireless Drivers" GUI and skipped the whole ndiswrapper process completely.
Upon typing 'iwconfig' in the terminal I get the following:
IEEE 802.11g ESSID: off/any
Mode:Managed Frequency:2.412 GHz Access Point 00:00:00:00:00:00
Bit Rate:54 Mb/s Tx-Power: 25 dBm
RTS thr:2347 B Fragment thr:2346 B
Encrytion key:xxxx:xxxx:xx Security mode:restricted
Power Management: off
Link Quality:100/100 Signal level:-10 dBm Noise level:-256 dBm
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0
(where the encryption key is an actual hex key)
When i type 'ifconfig' i actually get the HWaddr (or access point i assume?)
My problem is i can't get it to find my wireless router, (ESSID = "Wireless")
and it won't pick up my HWaddr.
The KWiFi Manager shows a connection spead of 54Mb/s and 100% signal strength but says "Connected to network: any"
I have no idea what's going on, i just want to know the easiest quickest way to get this up and running and it's driving me nuts!
