    Hi guys,

    I'm having some issues connecting with an internal intel 2200bg, I can see the AP's but I cant connect to any of them. Kubuntu 6.10

    I've been trying to use Wireless Assistant 0.5.5 and I've tried using iwconfig without any luck. I can completely remove the security settings on the AP's, using no wep/wpa and I can't connect. I can ping localhost and eth1 if I manually assign it an IP. I can connect fine when I'm using the 2200bg in windows and I can connect fine in Linux when I use the ethernet port. Any ideas? Let me know if theres some other command output I should post.

    Thanks,
    Paul
