progress report on this problem, in case you think its resolved.
The neighbourhood wireless networks are being detected, and my wireless
modem is showing up, but I CANNOT use the internet.
thus it seems the USB wireless dongle is functioning, but there is
a problem connecting to the Huawei HG521 wireless modem.
according to the iwconfig output given below it seems the
wireless dongle is communicating with the Huawei, but
when I give the network name + password + select WPA+WPA2 Personal
I cannot use the internet from Firefox.
Any ideas why?
any ideas what I should do?
Also what is BSSID?
what is MAC address?
what is MTU?
what are the correct IPv4 Settings, eg for Method,
what are the correct IPv6 settings?
I wish someone would invent plug and play for these things.
its not exactly rocket science,
