Can see wireless network but cannot connect on Ubuntu 8.04.1 with Lenovo T61
Posted on 2008-10-03
I have just bought a new Lenovo Thinkpad T61 with the Atheros wireless card, and installed Ubuntu 8.04.1 via the alternate install CD. However, the OS is able to see the networks that I know usually shows up in my area, but cannot connect to any one of them (the Wifi LED icon on the Thinkpad is off for some reason). I am able to connect with my other laptops, and the encryption is just a simple WEP, so I'm not sure why the Thinkpad T61 with Ubuntu 8.04.1 is not connecting to the network even though it can detect/see the network or at least signal strength...
Any advice would be appreciated!
