can connect to bt bt openzone of bt fon but not secure connection

Hello

I have a compaq pressario v6000 with broadcom wireless card bcm4312

I was running Suse 11.3 and one day the wireless stopped working so after several hours googling I gave up and installed 11.4 but I have exactley the same problem I can connect to my bt openzone or btfon network but not to my own secure network I have tried everything I can think of including disabling security settings on my homehub but I can’t get it to work at all I have used network manager and traditional I just can’t get it to work.

Did your hardware fail?

Does ‘/sbin/lspci -nnk’ show it?

Does ‘sudo /usr/sbin/iwlist scan’ show your AP?

Does the output of ‘dmesg’ show any problems?

What driver are you using?

Hi My hard ware did not faIl to my knowledge I dual boot with XP and that has worked all the time

sbin/lspci -nnk =

Darryl’s Broadband is the one I am trying to connect to so it dose show it

dmesg =

10.786163] b43-phy0: Broadcom 4311 WLAN found (core revision 10)

There was a lot of info on that but could not see anything that looked like a problem ??

The driver I am using I got from - openSUSE 11.4 | SUSE Linux | Beginner’s guide to multimedia codecs MP3 DVD 3D nvidia ati wireless wi-fi netbook Which worked fine for ages

The wireless works fine because I can connect to btfon and btopenzone my public connections just can’t connect to my own connection

Very frustrating

Thanks for any help

Darryl

In the future, put the postings of computer output between

...

tags. That will preserve the formatting.

As you can connect to open networks, your device and driver are functional and
you have installed the firmware. The encrypted one uses WPA1, which works for me
using the same device as yours.

Are you using NetworkManager? KDE or Gnome?

Iam using Network Manager and I have also tried traditional method with no luck I have played with all the settings loads but again with no joy

Sorry forgot Using Gnome

I know very little about Gnome so I will probably not be able to help after this
message.

The problem is certainly with the entering of the WPA-PSK secret. Check
/var/log/NetworkManager for whatever it has to say about getting the secret.
