Have you had any luck with 8.10 connecting to UVM? I've spent a while
today working through the instructions in those threads and nothing has
been working for me.
This solution, though, I doubt I've been doing correctly...
in gconf-editor : system>networking>connections>1>802-11-wireless-security.
Edit to look like : (what forum says to do)
I'm assuming tkip and psk are not the parameters that our wireless
network will take...any insight on what I should be setting there or any
updates on anything you have gotten to work?
