Doh! Wireless doesn't work on my R60 laptop

| tags: ubuntu

Wireless actually works except for the campus network. I can connect to the network over at the Inn (by accident I assure you) but our campus network uses WEP and does not broadcast SSID. Something about that kills it. Lots of Googling hasn't produced an answer. Michael suggests trying ndiswrapper.

Update: the following commands will make it work. Why? If I put them in /etc/networks/interfaces, they don't seem to work. Ack.

sudo iwconfig ath0 essid OurSSID key XXXX-XXXX-XX mode Managed sudo iwpriv ath0 authmode 2 Update 31 October 2007: Under Gutsy, I edited /etc/network/if-pre-up.d/wireless-tools and added /sbin/iwpriv ath0 authmode 2 just after the first fi. That seems to work.
