WiFi - Not connecting to access point

(1/13) > >>

lmart:
Downloaded CorePlus 4.5.6. Installed USB-HDD from LiveCD for use on my laptop.
WiFi does not connect to my router. Here's what happened after clicking the WiFi icon.
  scan networks
  send credential to access point
  udhcpc
  failed to connect

What can I do to help you help me resolve this issue?
 

lmart:
PS USB setup with (1) WiFi support, (2) ndiswrapper and, (3) Wireless Firmware.

coreplayer2:
If you are going to use the ndiswrapper, you'll also need the WinXP driver  follow the instructions in the Wrapper info file.  You'll not need the firmware extension either.

If the wifi app is scanning then you must already have the correct firmware and driver.  Or Ndiswrapper + WinXP Driver,  But in this case why the firmware.?  It's either one or the other.

Also it's hard to help without a list of equipment, at least the wifi device in this case

lmart:
thanks for your reply

just downloaded everything, have no idea what hdiswrapper is or how to use it
how do i know if i have the correct firmware and driver?
what command(s) would you like me to run to provide you with the list of equipment?
is there a tutorial on this stuff?

What can I do to help you help me resolve this issue?

As said above, follow the instructions in the info file - you can also use google to navigate to the ndiswrapper wiki.

If you use lspci or lsusb to give details of your hardware and paste the output here, it would the forum to help you.
