The laptop is a T2400
The adapter is a:
Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection
But I must admit, I was thinking that it was a Kubuntu or User issue, since the
wireless adapter must be working; it's telling me correctly what signals are
available in my house, and what their SSID's are.
It's as though I can create a library of possible network connections, which
currently has just one entry, but I'm missing a button that says "OK, so connect
to it, already!". I believe I'm not actually trying to connect to it, because I
get no error if I enter the wrong WPA passkey.
Thanks for answering.
