Hell, I've managed to fail getting windows machines to connect if I turn on
WEP. Unfortunately, networking is one of my lesser abilities. :)
As for my wireless card, it's the infamous Broadcom Air Force card. I could
not even get it to run under previous releases of Ubuntu. Under Gutsy, it
just worked once I enabled the restricted driver.
One of these days, I may play around with it again.
