WiFi connection fail
« on: February 21, 2013, 11:03:08 AM »
Hello,
This is my first try with TC. I downloaded the CorePlus-current iso, extracted using UNetbootin onto a USB drive.
Boots fine, but when I try to connect to my WiFi network it prompt for a "password".
The hardware is obviously working because it detects all the WiFi networks around me.
In the network setup I set to DHCP . Now to connect to the network I don't have a "password" but have a WEP key, which all other Linux distros were used fine.
Anyway I use the WEP key for password but in consistently refuse to connect.
"no lease can't connect"

What to do?

Code: [Select]
sudo iwconfigDoes your key show up or not?

Thanks for your quick reply.
I don't know how to copy text from the terminal so I am typing
here it is

eth1  IEEE 802.11bg ESSID:"Tibor"
          Mode:Maneged Frequency:2.412 GHz Access Point: Not-Associated
          Bit Rate:0 kb/s Tx-Power=20 dBm  Sensitivity=8/0
          Retry limit:7    RTS thr:off    Fragment thr:off
          Encryption key:9512-4613-93   Security mode:restricted
          Power Management:off
          Link Quality:0  Signal level:0   Noise level:0       
          Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
          Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:0  Missed beacon:0
     
          Now keep in mind that I don't enter the Encryption with the dashes shown
          I enter it as 9512461393

          Right now I am connected by a wired network.

         Thanks again

The dashes do not matter.
Looks like your radio is configured with the key shown, but for some reason not associated with the AP with ESSID Tibor.
