WIreless Networking Problem
 
In the house there is one wired computer, and 2 wireless computers. I use the 1st wireless one, which runs Linux, and connects fine. The problem is the 2nd one, that just updated to 9.10. When it updated it didn't replace the old network-manager and can't connect properly, and I can't seem to find the .deb file for the 9.10 (it worked fine for the 9.04). If I get it could I just install it into the computer and then configure the network?

I have already removed the old network-manager. Also the computer doesn't seem to be able to boot from a disc.

No one has the .deb of network-manager for 9.10?

Put the Ubuntu CD in your CD drive and do this:
sudo apt-cdrom add
sudo apt-get install network-manager-gnome

You could also wire it to the network and configure it using /etc/network/interfaces file. Then download from ubuntu repos

It now has Network Manager, but it will connect to a network and will display "Connection Established" but with 0% connection, and no internet.

So, do you have a question?

How can I get it so network manager will pick up the internet connection?

On my computer, which is 10.04 I connect to the same network with 90-100%. And it clearly picks up the same network. It is not the wireless card, I tried switching them.

Ok, we need some information about your computer and your wireless network.

For your computer please post the output of:
Code:

iwconfig
ifconfig -a
lspci | grep -iE 'network|wireless'

Regarding the wireless network:
- What type of wireless router/access point are you using?
- Is it providing IPs via dhcp?
- What type of encryption are you using (if any)?

Also it doesn't seem to display anything for lspci | grep -iE 'network|wireless'

It is WEP and the password is inputted correctly, the router is a Belkin Wireless G Router 2.4Ghz-802.11g. And I don't know what the 2nd one means, unfortunately.

If anything is likely to work through this method, I could try temporarily hooking the computer into the wired connection to try another fixing method.

scheidel21 08-07-2010 01:29 AM

Make sure you have any firware you need for the card as well, I had a similar issue sometime ago that was cause by needing firmware.

SanjiSasuke 08-07-2010 06:29 PM

I've discovered the adapter was the problem, as using a different one allowed it to connect.
