Edgy doesn't play well with some wireless systems for some reason.  I
had problems on my Thinkpad with the Intel Pro Wireless 2100 adapter
and the linux ipw2100 driver.

I found a website with a solution that worked for me.  I can't find
the site now, (I know I kept track of it somewhere) but here's the


sudo ifconfig eth1 up
iwlist eth1 scanning

find the access point you want, then

sudo iwconfig eth1 essid MY_ACCESS_POINT
sudo iwconfig eth1 key MY_WEB_KEY_IF_I_HAVE_ONE
sudo dhclient

I made scripts for the two APs that a frequently use:
ifconfig eth1 up
iwlist eth1 scanning
iwconfig eth1 essid XXXXXX
iwconfig eth1 key YYYYYYYYYY

and run it as sudo.  Works like a charm.

*Sometimes* I can connect with one of the Ubuntu GUI tools.  If one of
the tools finds an access point but doesn't complete the connection, I
can complete it manually with

sudo dhclient

I'm looking forward to Feisty  :)
