Wireless not connecting after reboot

(1/2) > >>

I installed 1.08 on  a acer aspire 3000 for a friend. I have to make a network connection
and it works till I reboot. It is set to connect automatically. It does not show up in the
network icon down by volume. When open the VPN connection it is in there.

But does not start or even let me click on it to connect. Never had this problem bfore,
had install drivers before but not this.


It SHOULD be just matter of right-clicking the network icon, selecting 'Edit Connections', deleting the connection located behind the 'VPN' tab, and adding the connection back - this time, under the 'Wireless' tab.

Now if it's adding things to VPN connections automatically, or by default, I'm clueless. I've NEVER seen *THAT* before...


Does this help?

What N4RPS posted would be the place to start. Editing your connection in the icon is how I've always dealt with this issue in other distros I've been on. If itstill doesn't work check you key ring to see if you password is staying stored in there. Let me know if you still have issues.

It is strange for sure. The only way to get it to work is to
click on the network icon and connect to a hidden network.

My network is not hidden for one. But then it will connect
to it, but when I shut it down or reboot I have to start all
over but this time when I click on connect to a hidden
network It says new or my network I made earlier. Then
it connects to it right off.

I have it set to connect on auto. So what is up with that.
I have reinstalled a few times and the last time connected
to my wireless only and when reboot I have to do the same
but this time I did not have to make a new it was in there
