Have you tried (at least temporarily) disabling IPv6 when connecting to that access point ?
http://ask.xmodulo.com/disable-ipv6-linux.html



Still might be handy to know what
Code: [Select]
iwlist scan
says for that access point

along with the output from:
Code: [Select]
ifconfig
and
Code: [Select]
iwconfig
whilst connected


Tried those many times, nothing stands out, no encrpytion, usual stuff.

Except... sometimes doesn't see the network at all, yet network is there.

To make it more puzzling, tried same network at different location (miles distant), mageia still doesn't work at all but the knoppix did, two days in a row. Day after tried both at original location, no joy.

Think it must be something to do with providers hardware/software setup. Or is a little green man pressing a button...

Mageia 2 and and sometimes knoppix 6 (live). No problems with any old internet cafe. Just this recently upgraded public wifi.
I'd just got my new usb belkin with realtek chipset working fine with both linuxes and the old wifi network, about ten days before they 'upgraded'.

The very first time it seem to work, connection no problem, loaded bbc sport,  then stopped working after a few pages.
The next few times one or two pages and then no more connection.
Now not even one page.

Head scratching.

Internet Connectivity / which...

Only used windows to test a crazy idea...

Doesn't work with mageia 2 and knoppix 6. Works with window 7 (yuck!)

With linux it stopped working after they 'upgraded' the wifi.

Something funny going on.

Has anyone had problems connecting to public wifi from linux and yet none when connecting the same laptop from windows?
