I have got the Netgear DG834G router, and I have to connect it with my laptop. I installed the drivers and they work fine. Then I tried to configure the wireless connection.
eth1 is my wireless interface.
# ifconfig eth1 up
# iwlist eth1 scan
eth1 Scan completed :

Why access point is not associated? Can you help me?
