    Hello all,
    i am new to linux (running unbuntu 9.04) and im having problems connecting wirelessly.
    Zoom USB wireless 4410a dongle

    i have installed ndiswrapper using ndisgdk and the device is there but it wont connect it asks for the passkey but still not working.

    i have tried waterheads instructions at least the best i know and here is the out put from the file.

    Hello. Please post the output of
    Code:
    dmesg | grep wlan0
    dmesg | grep ndiswrapper
    ndiswrapper -l
    What sort of wireless encryption are you using? Will it connect to an unsecured network?

    So everything is working fine, except it can't connect to WPA/WPA2 networks. This might be actually be a NetworkManager problem.

    I would give wicd a try instead and see if that helps.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install wicd

    Hi
    thank you for your reply
    unfortunately this does not work either.
    it fails when trying to authenticate.

    i have not tried unsecured at this time.
    Thanks

    quick update,
    i have upgraded to ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala, this did not help my connection.
    i can connect with no security but who wants to do that?

    do i need to setup the ndiswrapper.conf properly to get it to connect with WPA-TKIP?
    though i though WICD does all that for you.
