Re: questions

Ahhh...  So when this happens and you go to create new wireless
network are you able to select WPA then?

Hi Darren,
The hot spot is "Panera" for Panera Bread, USA; I have used that hot spot
for many years mostly with WinXp till a couple of weeks ago I loaded Ubuntu
 it seems to want to load that when I return home. The hot spot is about 6
miles away from my apartment. Like I said I'm using WPA2 personal. When I
click on 'configure' I get a screen that asks for a SSID and a WEP key, my
network is set to only WPA, so I cancel out. Then re-boot and try it again.
Sometimes the little stairway shows up on the task bar and sometimes NOT, so
in that case I reboot again till the stairway shows up then all is fine. The
program works it just doesn't like my setup I guess. My SSID is igeorge and
the access point is about 12 feet from my laptop. Like I said when I select
my home network it asks for a WEP Key instead of the WPA2 passkey...
