Sorry about the delay in replying.

the psk line is wrong. You need the 64 hex digit string generated by
Tried that and it still doesn't work.
1. Try again with the correct psk value.
Still didn't work.
2. Try our WICD (see <http://wicd.sourceforge.net/>).
WICD wouldn't run.
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/wicd/wicd-daemon.py", line 55, in ?
import wicd.wpath as wpath
ImportError: No module named wicd.wpath
3. If that doesn't work, install the latest version of ndiswrapper (see
Ndiswrapper wouldn't compile.
In file included from /usr/src/ndiswrapper-1.53/driver/crt.c:16:
/usr/src/ndiswrapper-1.53/driver/ntoskernel.h:649: error: field 'lock'
has incomplete type
(I think the kernel in 6.06 is too old for the newest ndiswrapper)
4. If none of the above works, download the LiveCD image for Ubuntu 8.04
and check if 8.04 supports your WLAN hardware.
Didn't recognise the hardware.
8.10 recognised the hardware but still couldn't connect via WPA.
I got the product number wrong by a digit. It's supposed to be:
F5D7051uk, Version 1000uk. NOT F5D7050uk as a stated previously, Sorry.
Anyone got any suggestions?
At the risk of taking a defeatist attitude, are there any Wireless G
(or better) network adapters (preferably USB) that are known to work
with WPA out of the box on 6.06LTS? Preferably with entirely Free
drivers (May as well do it right this time around ;))
I would rather get my current card working but if this looks like it
won't be possible it may be time to consider buying a new WiFi
Computers are like air conditioners. Both stop working, if you open windows.
