I recently installed Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon (7.10). Installation went off without a hitch, except for networking. I have a NetGear WG111v2 wireless adapter (which is notoriously hard to set up in linux) hooked into the computer. I successfully installed ndiswrapper and subsequently got Ubuntu to recognise the adapter. However, it refuses to connect to my NetGear WGR614v6 router. My wireless network has two Windows computers connected to it and is WEP-secured (64bit; I know, it's outdated but I don't believe WPA works well with Ubuntu). I cannot connect even without encryption. DHCP does not work for some reason, IP's have to be assigned by me. I did manage to get Ubuntu to connect for an hour by assiging the same IP as the Windows installation it's dual-booting with. However, connection was dropped on reboot. Any suggestions? Thank you!
