[ubuntu] wireless connection

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – My scenario is that a friends advent laptop would not connect to his wireless connection with the Ubuntu 9.10 I had installed on it for him. I went to have a look and it would not work and ended up bringing it home with me so I take bit more time over solving the problem. Now on my wireless connection I can connect no problem and the only difference I can find is that he has wpa security and I don't. Does anyone know if wpa can stop a wireless connection from connecting and if so a way around it. (HowTos)
