    wireless on laptop won't work if encrypted

    dell inspiron 9300 laptop, ipw2200bg wireless card, mandake 10.1 recognized card but didn't install correctly, recently upgraded to mandriva 2006 le, installs card just great! When router is set for no encryption on wireless, card works great, when encryption turned on, can't see gateway so can't get out, have configured with open and secure wep and pka, still no joy, laptop dual boots to winxp and have set for wpa in that os and it works just fine, help????

    can you manually connect to the router from the command line? With commands like this:

    ifconfig eth1 up
    iwconfig eth1 key xxxxxxxxx
    iwconfig eth1 essid "xxxxxxx"
    dhcpcd eth1 or dhclient eth1
    for more on setting key
    man iwconfig or  here  for internet man pages
    All right, brain. You don't like me and I don't like you, but let's just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer. All New Users Read This!!! If you have a grub problem please look at GRUB MANUAL
