Wireless internet access for Ubuntu through Connectify (Win7) access point
I've just set up a wi-fi hotpsot on a Windows 7 laptop with Connectify (Connectify - Turn your Windows 7 laptop into a Wi-Fi Hotspot), and tested that it's working with another Windows laptop. The hotspot is in "Access Point WPA2-PSK" mode.
When I try to connect Ubuntu (9.10) to it, I can see the access point under "Wireless Network", but I am faced with a problem. An authentication prompt pops up, but WPA2 isn't listed as a wireless security option. I can choose from:
- WEP 40/128-bit Key
- WEP 128-bit Passphrase
- Dynamic WEP (802.1x)
I know Ubuntu can handle WPA & WPA2, but why don't those options come up in said authentication prompt?
The other modes in Connectify ("Ad-Hoc, WEP" and "Ad-Hoc, Open") aren't picked up as wireless networks in Ubuntu, so it would appear that I'm stuck with the "Access Point WPA2-PSK" one.
Any help in not resorting to installing Windows on this laptop would be greatly appreciated!
