The problem is when connecting to the router with BT5 using wireless antenna model AWUS036NH It tries to get past t validating authentication in WICD but then gives a 'bad password' error when the password is right and Winows can connect to the wireless fine with the same credentials. However I can't connect to my router due to "Bad password" in wicd.
A number of 'fixes' have been tried from going through the forum however none have resolved the issue. The password is correct as if I scan with and use wlan0 (stock dell broadcom) it works fine.
No authentication is necessary to connect to the wifi hotspot as it is "open" for public access.
But my cell phone won't connect to websites or remote services via apps until I use my browser and sign in to a particular webpage provided by the ISP.
I tried changing /var/lib/wicd/configurations to use quotes around ASCII instead of the hex which was originally there and that did nothing.My question simply stated is: How do I automate the authentication step from a device that doesn't typically have a traditional browser?I have, in my particular case, a raspberry Pi configured with software that I want to use at trade shows etc. But this outbound connection is blocked by the ISPs "open" connection because I haven't, nor can I complete the browser part of the process.All the other laptops are connecting fine to the network.
Just in case it helps, here are the outcomes I have for : mint1 thebeat # iwconfiglo no wireless extensions.eth1 no wireless extensions.eth2 IEEE 802.11bg ESSID:"BTBusiness Hub-403" Mode: Managed Channel:0 Access Point: 34: EF:44: FD:11: D9 Bit Rate:0 kb/s Tx-Power=20 d Bm Sensitivity=8/0 Retry limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off Encryption key:off Power Management:off Link Quality:0 Signal level:0 Noise level:0 Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0 Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0I am lost!I have checked what could have been wrong with wireless, tried to use a usb wireless dongle (networks detected too in a seperate list in the netwrk applet, but same issue...stuck at password).
