Ubuntu: Wireless will not connect with an AzureWave chipset



Question:

I have installed Ubuntu 10.10 on the same machine as my windows setup.

However, it will not connect to my wireless network. It can see its there, it can attempt to connect, yet it will never connect. It will keep bringing up the password prompt everyso often.

I have tried turning my security to WEP, I ended up turning it back to WPA2. It is set to AES (noted a few threads on google about that).

Can you assist? I would love to dive into Ubuntu, but without the internet its pointless.

Solution:1

While this May not completely Answer your Question, I have a Desktop box with a Similar realtek chip set, that also by MAC says Azure wave, The advice i can give is it works in 11.04 and 11.10, so my guess is its a Kernel/driver issue
