I am fairly new to linux, I getting to grips with the offline and I am starting to be converted. The major problem I have is that I cannot get it to connect to my wireless network. I am using Fedora and my wireless card is the Belkin Wireless G Desktop Network Card - F5D7000uk (version 3000uk).
I am able to see the network and pick up the essid automatically through networkmanager or iwlist scan.
I have tried to connect using Network manager;
- it picks up the information and I submit my WEP key and the icon top right shows two green dots with a blue flame(?) rotating between them for a few minutes before asking for my key again.
and using the terminal commands.
$ sudo iwconfig wlan0 mode managed
$ sudo iwconfig wlan0 essid "BTHomeHub3-12GT"
$ sudo iwconfig wlan0 key 563865428
then tried to test the connection using
$ sudo ping www.bbc.co.uk
ping: unknown host www.bbc.co.uk
sudo iwconfig wlan0
wlan0 IEEE 802.11bg ESSID:"BTHomeHub3-12GT"
Mode:Managed Frequency:2.412 GHz Access Point: Not-Associated

If anyone can give me any help it would be greatly appreciated!
