Default Can't connect to te internt, just got my dell mini9 Ubuntu - 02-10-2009, 05:26 PM

Please help. I just got my Dell Mini 9 with Ubuntu, it is the first time I use Ubuntu. It found my network with no problem. When I type in the password it tries to connect for about a minute and then says it can not connect(tried at lest 30 times) I have it set up on Automatic.

I then went to System>Administration>Network it won't even let me click on any of the connections (they are all blurry)in order to switch from manual to automatic.

There is one mac and 2 dells (using windows) in this house and they had no problem connecting instantly.

I really appreciate any help you can provide.

Ok, really weird. After and hour and a half trying to connect to the internet and restarting the computer 7 times (its freezing up) it automatically connected on the 7th start up (and a few words of promised friendship if it was nice to me). I will trying to use it for a while and hope it is not a fluke.

I am concerned with the fact that it will not allow me to change the network settings, any suggestions? The freeze ups concern me as well but I will give it the benefit of the doubt a little longer.

Make sure you are using AES encryption on both ends (router and notebook). This is a common problem.
