*** IF YOU WANT TO FOLLOW MY HOW-TO MAKE SURE YOURE FOLLOWING IT TO THE WORD ***
I know that this application works. I have been using / testing it for long time before I wrote this howto.
If its not working for you let me know but expect that the first question always will be "Did you do exactly what I wrote?"
Sometimes the applications can be problematic. When I am writing a howto it means 3 things:
1) I am using this application myself for a longer period of time.
2) I am recommending it to You as something that works under the condition of following my exact directions.
3) I got rid of the problems by using workarounds and the application works as a charm for me.
I spoke to Piki on Irc support channel and realised that the "Connection failed" error is not only my problem. I have found a quick and simple solution for it and since some other users may suffer from it I will share it here.
Every time I am configuring my wireless network (does not matter is it in the ad-hoc or managed mode) all is peachy to the moment when I am clicking on the connect button. Everything is set up just the way it should be but I am getting "Connection Failed" error messages. If everything is set up properly then where is that coming from? I must press "Connect" button around a dozen of times before it actually connects.
Well I was messing around and got it solved.
First click on the KMenu button
in your KDE panel.
Next find "Run Command..."
button and click on it.
Type in pcc
in the small popup window and than click Run
Type in root's password
and click OK
A PCLinuxOS Control Center
will come up.
Now click on the "Network and Internet"
tab and then click on the "Network Center"
Now click on your wireless access point on the accessible wireless networks list to highlight it and click "Configure"
Now scroll down to the bottom of the configuration page and click "Advanced"
Now scroll down to the bottom of the configuration page and undo the tick
in the box next to the "Network hotplugging"
The box must be empty like on the screen below.
Now click OK
two times to close both the configuration windows.
You should be back to the Network Center
Highlight your network again on the list and click "Connect"
Now your wireless should connect without a tiniest problem...
Hope this will help somebody someday.
