wicd manager not able to online wirelessly with di 624


I am using di 624 c3 wireless router and able to go online wirelessly in windows xp. However, I use use Ubuntu 9.04 and the laptop only able to go online when it is wired to the wireless router. I am able to go to the http://192.168.0.1/ setup page. But when unplug the cable from the laptop, wicd manager was unable to connect to go online.

Do you know how to fix it?

Lucy

The driver of your network card is installed, so it's probably a configuration issue. What did you do to try to setup your connection?
Did you specify WEP, WAP, or did you input a password?

Hello,

Did you try the network manager that comes with Ubuntu? If so, did it show up any wireless network?

If not, try in a terminal this:
Code:
iwconfig
and post the output here.

Kind regards,

Eric

Sorry: Just noticed in your title that you used wicd. You could try from the command line though, put the output of the command I posted here. That way we can determine if it's a wicd problem or not.

Ok,

Now, execute the following commands:
Code:
iwlist eth1 scan
It will give you an output of all available wireless networks encountered. Write down the ESSID and address of yours.

Next execute the following:
Code:
iwconfig eth1 essid "Your ESSID"
iwconfig eth1 key "Your_key"
iwconfig eth1 ap 00:00:00:00:00:00 (the 00 address must be substituted by the address of your wireless access point)
iwconfig eth1 up
dhclient
The key part expects hexadecimal so if you only know the ASCII you change the command to this
Code:
iwconfig eth1 key s:"Your_key"
If this works your wireless should be up and the fault lies in my opinion with wicd. If the fault is with wicd, just uninstall it and re-install to see if it fixes it.

Kind regards,

Eric

I'm sorry I didn't mention that but did you run those commands in a root terminal? If not you'll have to put 'sudo' in front of everyone of them.

And the "Your_key" part is where you put in your passwordkey you have to provide in order to connect to the wireless network.

Kind regards,

Eric
