    Semplice Linux (Debian) wireless issues

    I've tried the stable and unstable version based off of Debian and when trying to connect wirelessly, both say "the network has disconnected"

    Could you provide a little more information?
    Did your wireless work previously? Could you give some info on your hardware? Is there a hardware switch for your wireless card?

    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help. Please keep it on the public boards.

    My wireless works fine with others distros I have on my computer.
    I'm using a Dell Latitude E6400 and it does have a switch, and it's on

    My usb wireless stick is card 2 and is working just fine in wpa security mode. Kinda hard to guess till you post some kind of readouts like from here.

    Since this is a desktop. I have no need for

    ~$ apt-cache policy rfkill
      Installed: (none)
      Candidate: 0.4-1
      Version table:
         0.4-1 0
            500 unstable/main i386 Packages
    But it may behoove you to install it and run it to show if anything in switches or bios is hard blocking wireless since you have a laptop.

    rfkill - Linux Wireless
