Wifi (usb dongle) not connecting, keeps asking for password

Postby yowmamasita » Fri Feb 01, 2013 4:46 pm

Info: http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=7qJ7BYBy

Ive got output from lsusb, lsmod, ifconfig and syslog there

What happens is that it can detect wireless networks but can't connect to them. It just keeps asking for the wifi password. I've tried both WEP and WPA2 Personal, both no luck.

This wifi device is a wifi dongle that seems to be using a Realtek chip as you can see from lsusb output. I really have no idea what's wrong with it because it is working fine in other OS. But I'd really like to use linux so I'm trying to get this to work.

Hope someone can help, thanks a lot.

Can you connect to an open network?
