Revision as of 15:54, 7 July 2007

I did this installation some time ago, but I am still trying out some new things from time to time. The report is not complete yet. If you also have experiences with Ubuntu 7.04 on the T43p, feel free to share them here. --zeno 13:17, 7 July 2007 (UTC)

Overview

Installation

I used the complete hard disk to install Ubuntu, so I just overwrote the Windows XP and the recovery partition.

Connectivity

Ethernet

Works out of the box.

WLAN

The hardware was autmatically recognized.

No Encryption/WEP

Open wireless networks work out of the box using the Network Manager applet. I did not try WEP.

Hint: Do not set up your wireless home network using no encryption/authentication. Also do not use WEP for your wireless network. Using the right tools, the keys may be found out in a few minutes. So it is basically equivalent to no encryption.

WPA

For using WPA1 and WPA2, I had to get rid of the Network Manager and manually configured the access, following the instructions in the Ubuntu Forums: [1].

WPA1:

WPA2:
