I just installed Ubuntu on my Dell Inspiron 9300. The install worked flawlessly. When it came to configuring my network, I decided not to do it because I couldn't remember my wireless SSID off the top of my head. After installing Ubuntu, I started 'er up and configured my wireless card. It's an Intel Pro Wireless 2915. I hear this is compatible due to the 2200 drivers. The card acts like it's sending and recieving and of course it is because I was able to go into the configure box and select my access point's SSID. I selected the DHCP option because I seem to remember good ol' XP used the DHCP option. I entered my wep key and then went to network tools to try a ping to test the connection. The ping didn't work, nor did accessing a site in Firefox. My assumption, then, is that my wep key is not being sent right. In addition, the network monitor says my wireless card (eth1) has sent something like 6577 packets (0.0kb) and recieved 775 packets (0.0kb.) So now you know everything I can tell you about my problem. I know nothing of handy dandy command line tools, if you know of one that might give me more info to give to you, I'd like to know it. If you know what my problem is, please help out, I'd really like to get Ubuntu off the ground. I suspect my problem lies in the fact that my wep key is a 5 digit number. It's not a 9 digit number thus I assume it should be seen as a pass phrase and not a number. Again, any help would be much appreciated.
