I loaded eeebuntu base on an old ibm laptop. Works great, but I am having trouble geting the wifi to connect. Wired network connects but wifi refuses to connect.
I installed wep key and essid using iwconfig.
System recognizes my card (Proxim with external antenna) - power light comes on.
iwlist shows correct wep key installed. Iwconfig shows wlan0 with the correct essid. Iwlist scan shows 6 cells, including my router. FYI I had to use sudo to get iwlist to scan - don't know if this is normal. Wifi will not connect.
I installed wicd. Same results.
When you open wicd it shows the wired and wireless cells. All 6 local cells show up. Wireless cells show wep to be what appears to an address (WEP 00:D0:9E:F7:8F:D1).
Under avanced setting there is an option for "use encryption" . I picked WEP (Passphrase) and entered my wep key. Will not connect.
Good news/bad news about installing eeebuntu base on a laptop. Good news is that it does not install a lot of things I don't want or need. Bad news is that I don't know what else I need to install and/or configure to get wifi working.
Thanks for your help.
