Fedora 10 - Network automatically detected, configured, never actually connects
Update: Problem solved, see two posts below.
I'm connecting to a Linksys Wireless-N router (which connects directly to the internet) with a Linksys WUSB300N wireless USB adapter.
I used ndiswrapper to install my WUSB300N. It successfully installed. As soon as I typed "modprobe ndiswrapper" to initialize it, Fedora 10 automatically detected my local network and brought up the correct SSID and everything.
I have WEP enabled on the network (which was also auto-detected, and was prompted for the key). I put in my key and double-checked it.
This is as far as I get. It doesn't finish connecting. If I mouse-over the Network Connections icon in the lower right, it says:
"Attempting to join the wireless network '(mySSID)'..."
I've tried applying different settings, but can't seem to get it to connect. It seems like if I try opening any other networking tool besides Network Connections, those programs just hang and don't ever start (as long as Network Connections is trying to connect).
Any ideas? The auto-configuration set my network as an "Infrastructure" with "WEP 40/128-bit Key" security, and it has my key in there. Authentication is "Open System". IPv4 Settings is DHCP (this I know is correct), and "DHCP Client ID" is blank.
Thanks in advance.
