Wireles problem - USB dongle

Hi people,

I am currently having a problem with an ASUS WL-167G dongle.

Conncection Wizard recognizes the USB, recognizes my active network, I click on "Wireless", "Scan", click on my network, click on "WEP", enter my network key, click "Use this profile", Wizard reports success, I click on "Acquire DHCP IP", Wizard reports success, but I cannot open any websites?!

Does anyone have advice?

Many thanks, Boone

You may need to install a driver, here is a link to linux drivers for ralink chipsets.

Hi Larry,

Thanks for your advice! It wasn't about the driver.

Actually I have no idea what it was, I switched my network from WEP to WPA/PSK and manually configured wlan0 via commandline and now it all works neatly

Thanks a lot!
