how to configure wireless now ?

Hi,

I've installed wireless card and I didn't receive any error in the installation process.

Now I want to use it but I can't make internet to work.

if I check my card with iwconfig I get the following message

Code:
wlan0     IEEE 802.11g  ESSID:"Alice-34376718"  
          Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.412 GHz  Access Point: 00:18:02:85:91:C6   
          Bit Rate=1 Mb/s   Tx-Power=27 dBm   
          Retry min limit:7   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr=2346 B   
          Link Quality=73/100  Signal level=-42 dBm  
          Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
          Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:0   Missed beacon:0

"Alice-34376718" is the name of my wireless indeed... it seems already selected

but ping Google gives "unknown" host

and iwlist wlan0 scan gives No results

Is there any driven procedure to configure the wireless ?

Is maybe because I was using ppoeconfig procedure to configure windows before ?

thanks

It looks as though you have not authenticated with the access point. WPA supplicant is needed to perform the association. You need to provide more information, such as authentication method enabled on the AP. If you're using a connection manager, you can supply those things including the shared key to authenticate with. Also, what Linux distro? Desktop environment?

WAP

If you're using a connection manager, you can supply those things including the shared key to authenticate with.

Not sure about the question, I'm not using a connection manager, just from terminal I configured the wireless using

Code:
iwconfig essid WLANname key "s:mykey-mykey-...-..."

Also, what Linux distro? Desktop environment?
gOS Linux


Last updates: ping and wget are working from Terminal. Skype is working. Only Firefox doesn't work.

thanks
