My problem is my desktop PC with fedora 17 and kde which I can't detect the wireless network with WPA in home to access internet. I live in a student residence and the only INTERNET available is a network wireless with WPA. I plugged a wireless USB adapter Digitech and fedora didn't have problem to start working automatically with it.
at first i could detect wireless networks, but after the computer rebooted after i activated the wireless card, i no longer can. I can connect to the internet via cable, wired connection but not wireless, help? how do i detect and connect to my wireless network.
I am using 12.10. I go to the network manager applet on the top panel and it cannot detect a wireless network. The computer used to have other Linux distributions and connected to the Internet without any pain. But when I use Ethernet it can successfully detect the connection and works flawlessly.
I've been struggling to connect to my home wireless network, but up until now my Broadcom card has been able to at least detect the network. I know this because in Network manager, in the Add Network Connection dialog box, if I tell it to scan for wireless networks then I see my home network along with all the other local wireless networks.
Ever since a windows update my laptop, an asus ul30vt, has been unable to detect wireless networks. I found that I could get it to detect them if I uninstall the drivers and reinstall. I reinstalled the operating system fresh and the issue still happens. I also bought a USB wifi dongle and I still continue to have the issue. I am stuck on how to fix this issue.
