[I must stress that of course they have provided me with the login.]Any Eee 901 owners out there connecting successfully to WPA2 or WPA APs?
It also recognises all the neighbouring wpa, wpa2, wep and even an un-protected AP nearby.
Needless to say I have not attempted to connect to any of these.
HTHDave Hello,even after having installed wicd, when I use openbox menu and click on network settings, network manager window appears...second thing in still is active the line asking to activate network manager.
There are a bunch of threads here regarding issues with WPA2 networks but I don't think any describe the problem here. If you show password it's a long string of characters. Crunchbang can connect to same network fine on my HP laptop. I'm typing this from Mint on the HP connected to the WPA2 network. I've heard using Wicd means it's going to be more difficult connecting to the net with a bluetooth modem in future?
It tries and tries then just asks for password again. Hopefully the job will complete without requiring wired access.
I was thinking changing to the kernel might help but seeing that Eeebuntu is having problems I suppose it won't. Toolz, Yes I believe it's a weakness of wicd that it doesn't support Bluetooth.
Moblin managed to connect, Slitaz doesn't, and I could possibly try something non-Ubuntu like Mandriva or PCLinux OS to see if they connect. Is it possible for you to try WPA rather than WPA2, although this may be grasping at straws?
@Toolz FWIW, I also have an Asus 901 and with Crunchee 8.10.02 I could never get either WPA or WPA2 to even appear as options (just WEP) using Network Manager. Have you tried using un-encrypted to test it really is an encryption issue? Cheers Dave Bad news, with Wicd I couldn't even connect to an open AP.
It was only when I changed to wicd that it worked perfectly. And Mandriva couldn't connect to the WPA2 AP ...
