I'm having real difficulties in keeping my wireless internet working on Ubuntu 7.10 all the time. Before I upgraded from 7.04 I did not have any real difficulties connecting my wireless to the router, but since I've upgraded the wireless has been very tempremental. Today it won't work at all, before the upgrade Ubuntu only asked me for the wireless network key, but now it still asks me for the wireless network key, and also the passphrase to access 'BTVOYAGER2091-6B'.
I think all my tampering, changing and editting must have something to do with not being able to connect to the internet at all today. When it does appear to connect, it says I have 0% signal so am unable to gain access to the internet (I use google.com as my internet tester on mozilla, I've also tried 'ping'ing the website ubuntu.com in the terminal. Here at the ping commands I've tested:
*******@*******-ubuntu:~$ ping google.com
ping: unknown host google.com
*******@*******-ubuntu:~$ ping 188.8.131.52
connect: Network is unreachable
*******@*******-ubuntu:~$ ping ubuntu.com
ping: unknown host ubuntu.com
Excuse the censoring of my name. The troubleshooting and other help files on Ubuntu were not helpful and hard to understand. I'm not quite sure what other information you require so I'll leave it at that for now.
