I have this tracking on bugzilla.
The problem is the program to set up those connections doesn't help you
understand what you actually need. When creating a wireless connection
it ask for a "Network Name" that I thought was just the name I wanted.
That's why it appears as "Wireless". The reality is that my home
wireless connection has other name so I couldn't connect.
That's not the only problem with the wireless connection setup. It
doesn't let you create more than one network connection so I have to
either leave the network name blank, to connect with any ESSID, or
change my network connection every time I move to the university.
Another problem is that it doesn't let you select the WEP of the
network. Luckily, my home network is open :( and to use my university
network I need to authenticate with the web browser instead of using
