That just gave me the page source in html. I did however find my psk but still 
can't get that laptop to browse the net. It's clearly connected to the 
network via wireless however and showing 100 percent. I've tried pinging my 
other systems from and and it from the other systems. Always a host 
unreachable comes up. Wireless works fine under vista on the same laptop so 
so it seems to be an issue with Ubuntu there. Now I'm trying to think what 
else I can do to troubleshoot it. Already checked that there's no proxy set, 
i.e. direct connection to the net. Apart from that not sure

It will browse via ethernet cable tho


The fault of others is easily noticed, but that of oneself is difficult to 
perceive. A man winnows his neighbor's faults like chaff, but his own fault 
he hides, as a cheat hides the false die from the gambler.
