    ASUS PCI-G31 wireless card does not connect

    I am running Mandriva 2010.2 on a Gigabyte motherbord and Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5200+ processor.

    I have an ASUS PCI-G31 wireless card installed. Using drakconnect via mcc, my landlord's wireless shows up fine (see screenshot:, but it will not make a connection.

    Actually, it did when I first tried, then after about a day, the connection was dropped and I have been unable to connect since.

    This is the output from iwlist wlan0 scan:

    Does anyone have any idea what the problem is?

    Is there any other information I should post?

    I don't run any RPM Distros Like Mandriva, Open Suse, or Fedora. But I will try and help a little since nobody replied.

    If Me. First I would go to Debian HCL; Debian GNU/Linux device driver check & report and run the check to see what drivers and such are working first to trouble shoot. It does not matter that it is a Debian Hardware check site as I have used it for Puppy Linux trouble shooting also.

    Second thing I would do is install H2s script, inxi, in Mandriva as another troubleshooting tool to add to Madrivas toolbox.

    inxi - A newer, better system information script for irc, administration, and system troubleshooters. - Google Project Hosting

    To install inxi is easy as pie in terminal.

    For most others, use(except in Arch or Pardus):

    as root: cd /usr/local/bin && wget -Nc && chmod +x inxi
    Then Just type in when install finishes

    inxi -F
    Post in next post what you have found out in code tags from kmuto and inxi -F readout.

    Next I would run in terminal (not sure if Mandriva requires sudo for this)

    ifconfig -a
    Post that readout in code tags in next post also. I am not hip with

    Using drakconnect via mcc
    as I primarily use wicd,ceni,or rutilt, (for AntiX) or whatever puppy linux comes with. Hopefully the sites and tools I mentioned will light a bulb in your head and you will sort this out on your own (crosses fingers)

    Edit: Before anybody else mentions it. Usually we tell you to post all the readouts from the instructions here also.
