Unable to connect to wifi network since upgrade to 7.10
After the upgrade process from 7.04 to 7.10 rendered my installation unusable, did a fresh install of 7.10 last night and simply cannot get my laptop to connect to my wireless network.
Previously on 7.04 I used wpa_supplicant and a few manual commands to set the IP, gateway, essid and channel of my wireless network, which worked fine, but I just cannot get a connection since the uprade.
The wifi light is flashing, so the drivers are working fine, and when in ‘roaming mode’ it picks up my wireless network. When I enter the essid and wpa key in the dialog box, the wireless network appears in the list of networks and the signal strength is 90%+, but I cannot access any web pages or anything like that.
Is there anything I am missing to get this to connect to my wpa (tkip) network? I’ve got three other windows/mobile devices connected to the LAN so there’s nothing wrong with the setup, nor this laptop as it works fine in Windows.
Any suggestions most welcomed.
