    Wireless connectivity set up with Netgear DG834G ROUTER AND LINUX 12


    New to Linux and need help please to set up my wireless I am using Linux Mint 12 "Lisa" on a Toshiba Satellite Pro M70 with an Intel Pro W/less 2200B/G card installed. The device finds my router and asks for the password then try's to connect but fails I've tried disabling the security and turned off access list protection. Any help appreciated, thankyou.

    Cheers Eddie

    Hello and Welcome.
    please post the output of
    Code:
    ifconfig -a
    Code:
    lspci -knn
    Code:
    dmesg |grep -i firmware
    You may need to use sudo for those commands.

    Hi Mike,
    Thanks for your input, have managed to get the router to accept the Toshiba. It was rejecting the Mac address resetting the router cured it. Up to now pleased with LinuxMint "lisa" runs like a dream.

    cheers Eddie

    Hi, eddxx.
    Glad you got your issue solved!
    Just remember to reconfigure any security settings in your router after resetting it!

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Yes, it is amazing how many problems are cured by utilizing "the big red switch"...
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
