unable to find my router wirelessly from Kubuntu hd install, yet live cd worked fine

I've searched and not found...

I have recently been using the livecd of Kubuntu 7.04 and liked it enough that I turned my xp laptop to a dual boot. All works as expected except the wireless networking. It worked out of the box on the live cd, easy peasy, however after the install I just cant seem to get it working.

I think the network card is working ok (sudo lshw -class network finds it ok) and KnetworkManager seems to be looking for a wireless network happily enough. The wireless network (ssid etc) just doesn't show up (whilst it does from the live cd, and it does from my xp boot).

So, if anyone has any idea why this might be, and could give me some advice on where to look to try and fix it, i would appreciate it.

(I have also posted similar on the Ubuntu forums here however if your post isn't answered in 20 mins you disappear off the front page!)

Obviously if you need any outputs/files for more info please let me know.

TIA, and kind regards,

Urgh, now the livecd doesn't want to work... (At all, not the networking, though this means I can't reinstall it like i was going to try)

Well I suppose the fact that the networking worked well on the livecd only serves to prove that it can work. The fact that it isn't working is a seperate issue. I have tried using kwlan as well and also found that I have no success locating my wireless net using that either.

Any ideas to help me narrow down the problem?


kubuntu, networking, ssid, wireless
