I just installed SL5 on my laptop: http://uk.computers.toshiba-europe.com/ ... D=116133#0
I don't have any problems with a cable to connect to the network.
With SL3.4 I never had any problems with configuring the wireless connections. With SL5 KDE and KDE control module I cannot get connected, seems like this tool runs in a loop and I tried various options to connect to no avail.
I am trying a WEP connection. When I right-click on the System Tray icon the connection manager says "connecting", then fails and keeps asking me for the password. I am using the "show password" option, so I am sure it's not a prassword problem.
The main options I am trying are:
WEP or WPA/WPA2 personal (I'm not a network guru, so don't what all this means)
Passphrase 128 bit
Open system/Shared key (don't know what it's for too)
Which options should I choose?
My router is: http://www.frequencycast.co.uk/homehub2.html
I will appretiate any help.
