    Wireless connectivity


    Having some problems connecting to wireless I'm on Kubuntu and it sometimes will connect and then when I try to get a webpage it wont load it. But when I am on a wired connection it works just fine. Sometimes it doesn't connect at all on the wirless so if anyone could please help me out that'd be a great help. FYI I trying using adept to find some wireless tools just to see if it wasn't the one that came with the disk. Thanks for any replies~

    Your wireless seems to use the Linux rtl8187 driver. If you enter this command in a terminal, you should find it in the list.
    Code:
    lsmod
    If it is not there, let me know. or post the output of that command in this thread.

    I don't know of any special configurations needed to get this card to work. You may need to first configure it, as you would need to do any other network card. Then use the NetworkManager daemon to access wireless access points. This can be accessed through the icon in the system tray. You may need to right-click it to enable wireless. Any available networks are then accessed by clicking on them.

    You didn't need to post all that. The driver is the second from the top.

    Have tried to configure the card?

    Sorry I'm just a bit new to Linux , um I'm not too sure. Whenever I try to get connected the wireless I can get maybe one or two pages loaded, after that it stops working.

    I mean have you configured the wireless as a network card. To bring up the network configuration window, enter this command:
    Code:
    sudo network-admin
    This can also be started from the menu by selecting Network.

    Make sure that it is pointing towards the wireless router, and any other thing that is needed. I don't use wireless on Ubuntu, so I'm not exactly sure on this.

    Then try what I previously said about using NetworkManager.

    To view the wireless cards available on your system, use this command.
    Code:
    iwconfig
    Post the output of this command. It is a lot less than the lsmod command.

    For the iwconfig I got.

    lo no wireless extensions.

    wmaster0 no wireless extensions.

    wlan0 IEEE 802.11g ESSID:"linksys"
    Mode:Managed Frequency:2.437 GHz Access Point: 00:18:39:BA4:B9
    Bit Rate=54 Mb/s Tx-Power=27 dBm
    Retry min limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr=2346 B
    Link Quality=44/64 Signal level=57/65
    Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
    Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0

    eth0 no wireless extensions.

    I think I may have gotten it working I just unplugged it and I tried some options after looking through all the information you've given to me to help. Hopefully it stays working but I'll post this up there.

    Well I restarted the computer and now the wireless doesn't want to work again. The first time I went to the tray right clicked the KNetworkManager and went to manual configuration and then clicked on wlan0 and did configure interface and set it to automatic because my router doesn't have a WEP and it seemed to work fine. Then I restarted and now it doesn't want to work and when I tried to do it again it said something about the gateway.
