2009/11/16 22:12:27 :: Attempting to autoconnect with wired interface...



Can you try to connect to wireless and then send us log, because in this one there is only information about wired connection.

Thanks.

I found something.

Ok, I will try to explain.
Open WICD main window, where you can find your A2 wireless network.
Press small triangle before A2, you should see additional settings.
Press "Advanced settings", and in new window uncheck "Use Encripton"

Try to connect.

After that, please sent log file again.

Thanks.

OK.

Lets go different way.

Open WICD main window, where you can find your A2 wireless network.
On top of it you can find "Preferences", click on it, then in "General Settings" find and check "Enable debug mode"
Then, please exactly how I say:

Unplug ethernet cable, wait 1 minute, plug it again, wait 1 minute.
Then unplug ethernet cable, and try to connect to wireless, by pressing the CONNECT button near A2 in the WICD main window, check if you are connected, if YES press disconnect button, if NO just plug ethernet cable.

Only after this, please sent WICD log file again.

Thank you.

Thanks.
Now, you have:
Cell 05 - Address: 00:11:95:08:1F:0C
ESSID:"A2"
Protocol:IEEE 802.11bg
Mode:Master
Frequency:2.427 GHz (Channel 4)
Encryption keyff

But WICD is trying use secure connection with your wireless router, what is why you can't connect

2009/11/17 20:02:36 :: Generating psk...
2009/11/17 20:02:36 :: ['/usr/bin/wpa_passphrase', 'A2', 'xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx']
2009/11/17 20:02:36 :: Putting interface up...

So I suggest to very carefully check "Advanced settings" in WICD, and in new window UNCHECK "Use Encripton", delete any keys.
Look at the second picture on http://wicd.sourceforge.net/screenshot.php.


There is another way.
You can set up secure connection on your wireless router and do exactly the same settings in WICD "Advanced settings". They should be identical.
In this case you have to check the box "Use Encripton"

I had an accident where the power of the cable modem was off. When the power back on, the ip address was changed and seemed to have reset ip address in the wireless router as well.
