Wireless Errors with Ubuntu/VIA VT8237

Hello, I'm having trouble setting up my Ubuntu desktop machine. The wireless card is having some strange problems- even though it is configured properly, and can detect wireless networks and their signal strength, it cannot connect to them. I've tried Kubuntu and Ubuntu, with 3 different Wifi cards. Any advice?

Thumbs up wireless

i am only a two wek old newbie. I do understand the problematic. i have played a lot with ubuntu 7.1 and have found it to be helpful to not use the remote settings as it always reverts to the loop0 port of the system.
setting it up manually via eth0 and entering the access name and possibly the passwd key will get you the results - hopefullY.

it worked on my machine....
