running fully updated 2009 with latest kde on acer aspire one. Today I noticed an unlocked linksys signal, but couldn't connect on ath0. The linksys, though unlocked, says it's managed. when I try to configure my wifi, the default choice is managed. I tried both that and Auto. Without posting all the konsole data in Coffeetime's helpful Basic Networking Tips sticky, I just want to ask:
Is the reason I can't connect because the linksys signal is managed? I haven't connected wirelessly in awhile, but I seem to remember the word Open next to the ones I connected to. Am I remembering right?
