I upgraded to Gutsy Gibbon yesterday when Ubuntu asked if I'd like to - and I've lost my wireless! The network is seen, but it says the encryption is WEP. I also don't have any option when creating a profile except WEP or OPEN. It worked the same way building it from source, or downloading the package that's in the repository (which is 0.15, the same version I have the source code for).
Is there some trick to getting WPA support?
Gutsy Gibbon is apparently shipped with the new rt2x00 driver which use wpa_supplicant.
As far as I know, RutilT does not support these drivers only the rt2x00 legacy driver. Maybe later ?
Anyway, some people reports that the drivers shipped with the Ubuntu are working fine. If there are really new rt2x00 drivers, you need to configure wpa_supplicant for authentication either directly by editing the configuration file or via an interface like network-manager.
Thanks! I'll give that a shot.
Yes, RutilT doesn't support rt2x00 at the moment, but will. On the bright side, the problem of transparency of the tray icon should be solved Daniel!
I hope to release a new version next month.
I had uninstalled network-manager when I got RUtilT working. I reinstalled network-manager and network-manager-gnome, and it "just works" with my adapter! It looks like the rt2x00 driver may be getting more mature.
Yes it has, it will be coming with vanilla kernels starting from 2.6.24.
