    Exclamation Need help connecting to Linksys router with Belkin USB dongle


    Hello, I'm trying to set up my computer in managed wireless mode to access my Linksys router. After a day or so of trying still no deal! I know the Belkin USB dongle works because I can make it transmit all day long in ad-hoc mode. I diasbled my router security to make it easier and just can't seem to connect. This is some of my system info:

    Try installing the Wicd network connection manager, and use that for your connections. You may need to uninstall the NetworkManager appliction.
