No WAP2 option in wireless security drop down menu

Asked by yvan


I am using Xubuntu 9.10, kernel 2.6.31, when I try to connect a WPA2 personal either it is not seen or if seen the Authentication window does not propose WPA2.
If I create a connection in the connections manager I can select the WPA security option, but when I select it from the available network, the same Authentification window appears with no WPA option.
How can I fix this problem?
Thank you

It is possible that your adapter is a legacy one and does not support WPA2 at all. Therefore I recommend you to consult the manual and verify whether WPA2 is supported or not.

Without havin' checked this I think "lspci", "/var/logmessages" and "ifconfig -a" should already provide you with some information on your adapters capabilities and wheteher they were recognized by the system or not.

Can you help with this problem?

Provide an answer of your own, or ask yvan for more information if necessary.
