Which distribution are you using?

Did you try setting the wireless connection through iwconfig?

I reset my router. (on/off)

Okay, but did you issue the appropriate iwconfig command?

Example:
Code: Select all
# iwconfig eth1 essid "router" key 25:52:ff:ab:ab:cd:ab:33:00

So, was this your solution?

Titan's example was a bit opaque, so I'll try to explain it.

Substitute "router" for the name of your router, i.e. Linksys or bluzepher.

Substitute that long hexadecimal key for your router's WPA access key.
