Once again Mark I did that well known special trick (and often charged by IT consultants  ;))................I switched it off and back on again......and it all works well now.  :)

An update.  The Zipped folder worked great but I am having a problem with connecting my Netbook to my Sony Experia arc S mobile using its WiFi mode.  It worked OK  with Ubunbtu 10.04 but even though it can be see by the the phone and the passwords are identical it will not connect.  Any ideas?

Can you start a new topic please, I'm not 100% convinced that question falls under the scope of this topic, and probably deserves its own topic anyway.

Remembering you're talking to a non smartphone user, can you include a description of how you usually initiate the connection (which apps are involved, and do you connect netbook --> phone, or vice versa).

And any error messages that are presented.
