Default Kubuntu wireless setup issues

Ok! Complicated, yesterday I spended 4 hours to get this working....

First of all, I installed my atheros with madwifi driver.
Then, I add the ath_pci module to auto loading list in modules
Then I uninstaled wicd (my preferred net aplication in Ubuntu 8.04) and instaled knetworkmanager

In your case, to auto connect, if your card is working properly, you must install Wicd, it allow you to select a lot of profiles and it have auto connect option!

I have managed to get my
Kubuntu system to access the internet

through my home router. *It would not do
so out of the box. *No

amount of fiddling with the GUI Network
configuration utility would

make this work.



In order to accomplish this, I had to:



a) Go in to the command line console

a) disable WEP on my home router

b) iwlist scan # to display my router

c) sudo ipconfig ath0 essid "HOME
NETWORK"

d) sudo dhclient

e) ping ... # ok



Now I want to:



a) make this work without disabling my router
WEP security

b) make this automatic at startup.



What do I have to do to accomplish this?

What version of KDE? 4.0 or 3.5.9? If it is 4.0 forget the rest of my
comments, I can only talk about 3.5.9. And what network configuration GUI
do you mean? Is it knetworkmanager or is it K-menu -> system settings ->
network settings?

From "ath0" I suppose you are using an Atheros chip set - can you confirm
that?

Well, some nitpicking: Make that WEP encryption - it is no real security
nowadays. If you want security, use WPA / WPA2. See
<http://www.heise-online.co.uk/security/news/print/87889>.

> b) make this automatic at startup.

If you want it automatic after you boot the machine, you should use a
manual configuration of the file "/etc/network/interfaces". But I suppose
it is good enough after login. Then you should use knetworkmanager.
Select it from K-menu -> internet -> knetworkmanager. You will get an
icon in the system tray. Right click that icon and you should see a line
with the name of your network and a signal level bar. Click on that line
and there should be a popup asking for the WEP key. If you don't see the
line, go to options -> enable wireless networks. Then look for the line
with your network name again, it should be there now.

Finally, if that doesn't work, please let us know what doesn't work. Some
people have problems with knetworkmanager, but for me it just works with
an Intel IPW2200 and an Atheros chips set.

Isn't madwifi deprecated? My wife's laptop is using an ath* (can't remember
exactly which) driver without madwifi, and it was automatically detected on
install.
