Wireless Networks Not Displayed [SOLVED]

Postby EmanuelGO » 2010-02-21 17:43

I have a fresh install of Debian 5.04 Stable. It detects my wireless card with a RT61 chipset and gives me the option to select a wireless network through the network-manager icon in the upper panel, yet no wireless networks are displayed. So, how do I fix this and get the ability to connect to my network? I have tried connecting manually but it refuses to connect. No errors, it just does nothing and reverts to roaming mode.

I believe the exact model of my card is an Edimax EW 7128G. Thank you.

Somebody told me I should be using Ubuntu. I am assuming they are correct. Well, it ends up I had to install the firmware for my card. Problem solved. Sorry for the waste of space.

i a glad that you got your card working. To me, the fact that you managed to get you machine up and running on your own shows that you have the aptitude for Debian. I wouldn't let someone put you off from using Debian if you really want to. It has been my experience that the system is more stable and performs faster using Debian.

Anyway, that is just my 2 bits worth and experience.
