BringABox Saturday 9 February 2008


Around a dozen of us.


University of Surrey, Guildford


The meeting was somewhat quieter than usual, with no talks given, but lots of browsing each others activities and latest installations.


WiFi Gutsy

From the mailing list:

Well if there's one word that's guaranteed to break things it's "Eureka", still, let's see what happens...

My WPA wifi connection has been consistent now over several reboots. With Ubuntu Gutsy and the Zydas based Safecom SWMULZ-5400 USB interface here's the recipe for setting it up with NetworkManager??. This is mostly on the web, AFAIK the main new content here is the last bullet and the pulling it together.

- set the Netgear DG834G router/AP to broadcast its SSID, otherwise this hardly ever works.
