Hey guys. I know their are multiple topics on this subject. The problem im having is connecting to my WEP protected wireless net work. Iv used many console commands and the Wicd program. It connects for about 2 seconds then drops out.

Just so you know im not bullshiting about spending a fair while searching and reading other posts. Heres the links to the ones iv tried:

Ok so we got that out of the way.
Im using a Acer Aspire One netbook with BT4 final as the OS. The stock wireless card is what im using now. It connects fine and stays connected. When i want to use my Alfa 1w with the 9dbi antenna it connects for 1 second. Enough to load one page then drops out. Im using the rlt8187 drivers in managed mode.

Its doing my head in. Everything iv seem to try has failed.
How ever one of the links i provided had a update patch from 2006 i think it was i didnt think to install it due to it being 2010. Not that i knew how.

If you wish for error reports and so on please tell my what to type and ill post up the replies i get from commands because as you can see iv been through a fair few different commands and so on to be able to remember all the outputs and post them in here.

Thanks in advance. Jesse.
