    I am trying to connect to a hidden network with WPA/PSK encryption. The wired connection never connects
    According to your readouts. It should connect as wpa/psk encyrption has no bearing on a wired connection.
    Here is where my ignorance of Arch linux kicks in. What the F_________

    Sure does not look like Arch Linux to me.

    Bus 001 Device 008: ID 050d:945a Belkin Components F7D1101 Basic Wireless USB Adapter v1000 [Realtek RTL8188SU]
    So you are running a wireless usb, huh.

    __ Port 3: Dev 8, If 0, Class=vend., Driver=r8712u, 480M
    I am guessing that is the driver for that wireless usb. Which shows in lsmod also

    r8712u 163918 0
    iwconfig:

    wireless is showing as running. Even though you can't get the pass key to take which is one issue. The other issue. Land Line. Should be working just fine.

    Just so we are on the same page

    cat /etc/os-release
    also we need

    Code:
    cat /etc/os-release
    Returned:
    Code:
    NAME = "UBUNTU"
    VERSION = "12.04.2 LTS, Precise Pangolin"
    ID = ubuntu
    ID_LIKE = debian
    PRETTY_NAME = "Ubuntu precise (1.04.2 LTS)"
    VERSION_ID = "12.04"
    the command
    Code:
    rfkill list
    Yielded no return.

    And to answer your other question yes I am attempting to run a wireless USB card (this is a desktop if it matters)

    I figured out what wireless it is showing I am connected to. It is a network that is my neighbors, that is an open network, but just far enough away to where I can't get a clean signal when my devices attempt to connect. So it shows connected to that network, but unable to submit/receive any data.

    It would seem that you're running Ubuntu... not Arch. So this thread has been moved.

    That being the case... gimme a bit. I might be able to pull something up.........
    Maybe
