wireless help (can't find IP address)


I've been trying for days to get my wireless working. I'm running a 2.6.3 kernel.

relevant output of lspci is:
02:02.0 Network controller: Harris Semiconductor Prism 2.5 Wavelan ch 01)

ifconfig yeilds:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:09:6B:10:EE:83
inet addr:192.168.0.8 Bcast:192.168.0.255 Mask:255.255.255.0

TX packets:4 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0

RX bytes:200 (200.0 b) TX bytes:200 (200.0 b)

and iwconfig shows:
eth0 no wireless extensions.

lo no wireless extensions.

eth1 IEEE 802.11-DS ESSID:"NETGEAR" Nickname:"Prism I"
Mode:Managed Frequency:2.417GHz Access Point: 00:09:5B:9D:5B:C2
Bit Rate:2Mb/s Tx-Power=15 dBm Sensitivity:1/3
Retry min limit:8 RTS thrff Fragment thrff

Power Managementff
Link Quality:64/92 Signal level:-33 dBm Noise level:-143 dBm
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:19 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0

eth1 i'm assuming is the wireless since the MAC address associated with it is the same as the wireless card. when I bring eth1 up the kwifimanager applet detects a signal but it cannot find an ip address. I'm connecting to a NETGEAR wireless router in my apartment.

All of these outputs were from when i had eth0 started up and eth1 brought up as well.

Someone please help i've spent way to much time on this and gotten nowhere.

did you set up eth1 through ifconfig ?
what is the output of route -v (not sure if its the best switch but it'll work) ?

i used iwconfig to set up the essid and wireless prefrences, i just used ifconfig to bring eth1 up. The drivers were included in the 2.6 kernel via wireless suport and 802.11b support
