[Ubuntu-US-PA] Wireless Issues

I did test access to multiple unsecured routers around my neighborhood, and also at a couple of WiFi hotspots outside of my house. Over the weekend, I tested at home, and I have no problem connecting to unsecured WiFi, but the WPA connection never happens. I get 'connected' but an IP address is never assigned. I even tried setting a static IP and that failed as well.

The card works fine in Windows XP, I can connected via WPA there.

So...looks like it's the WPA Supplicant that is the issue.

Thanks again;

Dwayne Sudduth.

Hello Dwayne,

Until someone comes along with the answer, I'll contribute by asking some
stupid questions.

First, does your old Dell have an internal wireless card? I once had to use
a USB network adapter on an HP whose internal wireless card broke. I  had to
disable the drivers for the internal card first.

Second, can you connect to your wireless router if you disable the
encryption, or at least bump it back to WEP? What if you turn off
auto-channel scan and leave it on channel 1? I know encryption is an
absolute must, but if you can connect to your own router without WPA, then
we know it's probably the supplicant.

Thanks for entertaining me here. I don't want to insinuate anything by
asking such basic questions, but I like to rule out hardware before I tackle

Good luck,
