Ok, Just tried to install network-manager-gnome
"error: Dependancy is not satisfiable:libnm-util0"

Does this mean I must find the file libnm-util0 and install it?

Hi,
I'm a rookie at this stuff but, could you get a copy of Knoppix and try it to see if that OS will hook up to your wireless?
What got me started was that I'd tried two different Linux systems and got disgusted with their inability to go on the Internet. Then for kicks, I run the "live" boot Knoppix and Wham!, no programming, no configuaration (in fact, at the time, MS was fouled up and wouldn't go on-line without the wireless card CD run to load drivers).
Point is, if Knoppix will work, couldn't you check the settings information on it and set your OS to the same thing?
They're both Debian-based which is why I tried Unbuntu (which also worked "out of the box") on my hard drive.
If this approach won't work, I hope one of the experts out there why tell me why. I think getting on line is (or configuring for it) is one of the things that turns off new users since you can't access all these great forums to aid you.
Best of Luck (and talent).

I think I may have found the problem
Error:
Network Manager cannot be installed on your computer type (i386)
Either the application requires special hardware features or the vendor decided to not support your computer type


I have a Dell Latitute D610
Does anyone know is this computer is not supported and what I should do?
Thanks

I recommend you remove gnome-network-manager and disable nm-applet, if still present, in System-> Preferences-> Sessions-> Startup Programs tab. With Synaptic install wifi-radar which IMHO is a better solution anyway.

The only things in sessions are:
update-notifier
/usr/lib/evolution/2.8/evolution-alarm-notify
gnome-power-manager
gnome-volume-manager --sm-disable

Fargos
Any other ideas?
Do you have time to converse with me through IM and help me troubleshoot. I'm going on day three here with this and becoming a bit desperate

Hi, I don't know if this will help or not, but I did find a .deb for wifi radar. The problem is that I don't know if it will solve your problem. But it certainly won't hurt. Here is the link.

http://ubuntu.mirrors.tds.net/ubuntu...buntu2_all.deb

My yahoo screen name is vagabondgambler if you ever want some help in real time. I think something else is wrong with your set up though, if you can't get online via dsl either. In any event....

Good luck...hope we can help

David

Hey, I found a few links for you....

http://jjinux.blogspot.com/2006/06/l...tude-d610.html

I would try this first.....

http://home.comcast.net/~canez/d610/#network


You can download the .deb's here and here...

http://home.comcast.net/~canez/d610/...ustom_i386.deb
http://home.comcast.net/~canez/d610/...ustom_i386.deb

Found this too....

"Wireless Lan

Hardware: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2915ABG MiniPCI Adapter

Driver status: native linux driver available at http://ipw2200.sourceforge.net/

The native driver works out of the box. Just extract, compile (using make; make install) and run modprobe ipw2200.
For information on how to configure your wlan card, please see the above website.

If you want your nifty wlan led to light, add led=1 to the modprobe line, or add options ipw2200 led=1 to a file in /etc/modprobe.d/.

For Debian there are the ipw2200-source and ieee80211-source packages available, which simplifies following up on new releases."

Found that last bit here http://www.kcore.org/?menumain=4&menusub=2

You might want to think about leaving your wireless wide open (no wap or encryption) just until you figure out your problem here, just so you know if the problem is getting things to work at all, or if it's with the encyption protecting your wireless network.

Good luck..

David

P.S. Are you using the x86-64 version of ubuntu ?

ok got it to work, and this was how:

I downloaded the following files in my windows partition and moved them to my ubuntu edgy partition:

dhcdbd_1.14-2ubuntu2_i386.deb
libnl1-pre6_1.0~pre5+svn21-2ubuntu2_i386.deb
ibnm-util0_0.6.3-2ubuntu6_i386.deb
network-manager_0.6.3-2ubuntu6_i386.deb
network-manager-gnome_0.6.3-2ubuntu6_i386.deb

I also had to download various libraries that these .deb files were dependent on. It was a pain and took a while but now I'm on the internet and finishing the install of edgy.
to Budword, Fragos, MunkeeWrench Thank you so much for all the help, you guys have great. I really appreciate it. Have a great weekend.

Hope you enjoy linux as much as I do.

Well, I know that my wireless is working. And the rest of the message I don't understand. Do you have any suggestions?
FYI: My wireless is WPA
It seems that my computer sees my neighbors wireless which is a local elementary school and not locked but does not see mine.
Can't understand why this problem has not been solved.

Where are you in the world because I do not think you should be working at the pppoe level at all with wireless.

Try changing the desktop to KDE as the programs for wireless are really the best of all the distros.

In the US I've only seen PPPOE used with DSL connections. I don't know where you are but question your using it with wireless.

I live in the U.S. and I have a DSL connection. The modem is hooked up to a wireless router in my home.
But the problem has been fixed if you read my previous post.
Thanks again for being so helpful.
