dhcpcd wlan1 times out
 
Hey,

I manage to connect to my wifi using

iwconfig wlan1 essid "mywlan" key 1234567890

then iwconfig wlan1 gives me:

wlan1 IEEE 802.11bg ESSID: "mywlan"
Mode:Manager Access Point: Not-Associated Tx-Power=20 dBm
Retry long limit:7 RTS thr: off Fragment thr: off
Encrytion key:1234-5678-90
Power Management: off

dhcpcd wlan1
dhcpcd: version 5.2.2 starting
dhcpcd: wlan1: waiting for carrier
dhcpcd: timed out

Im using a Alfa Awus036h wifi dongel under Arch disc install, only got wifi on other computer.

Ive been googling my arse off for this and can hardly find a tread since 1998 on the subject.

Anyone can give me a hint on what i need to look for?

There's your key, you're not connected, thus can't get an IP address. Here's the guide for archlinux for your card.

Hi, sorry for long delay

First, try connecting to an unencrypted AP. If that works, try enabling encryption, and monitor your logs for anything related to wlan0. Also, I don't recall what kernel version the Arch CD is using, but this being a newcommer to the linux world, you can expect night and day differences between kernel versions. You might want to find a distro with a newer kernel, or make an install from CD (and then upgrade) or via cable (ethernet).
