I normally see one of my neighbours wifi but not mine, but this also tells
me it's working. I've tried sitting next to it 50cm from router nothing. As
I'm not getting a screen I've deleted it from my notebook.

I'm setting up Kubuntu on my desktop now, someone told me to try this. The
same wifi card is in there a Ralink when I'm finished I'll try the no
security and let you know.

Hi Andre,

I have not been using Ubuntu or Linux for long but have had problems 
setting up my wireless network so for what it is worth try going back to 
basics. If you are connecting at work your card and setup must be OK.

Make sure you are in range. Sounds stupid but my broadcom based card in 
my laptop connected fine from my bedroom when in XP, but wouldn't in 
Ubuntu. I ended up moving the router to the kitchen.

Turn off security settings (WEP, WPA ect) on router to try get it to 
connect like that first.

Make sure DHCP is turned on on the router.

Cheers
Jonathan Sparks
