Kubuntu 8.04 cannot connect to secure wireless router (WEP)
I'm new to Linux, but have 25 years computing experience.
I have installed Kubuntu 8.04 on a Gateway M6866 laptop.
Wireless adapter is working OK because I can connect when network is unsecured, or secured with WPA.
But once the same network is secured using WEP, connection doesn't happen. I can see available networks in KNetwork Manager but can no longer connect. No error messages, just no connection. Following DHCP negotiation the progress bar disappears.
Is there anything I can try to enable connection to the WEP secured router?
I would really like to keep this as I need WEP for some legacy machines.
Any suggestions will be very welcome.
Does it work with iwconfig?
If it connects that way, the problem is in the application you usually use to connect to networks; either it assumes the key wrong (ascii/hex) or does something else the wrong way..but if iwconfig method fails too, it's something more interesting.
I'm not sure, but you might have to bring the interface up before doing that (if it says no such interface); in that case use
