Reciving no IP via DHCP (suse 10.1)


Dear Community,
first of all, the technical Data:
WLAN-Stick: Linksys WUSB54GC-DE
Router: AVM Fritzbox 7170
I installed the Drivers from Serialmonkey for the device. I can connect to the Network without problems, however, I do not receive an IP-Address from the DHCP-Router.
Thank you in advance,
baking-a-77

How did you figure out that you've been connected to the ssid?
Did you check firewall and /etc/resolve.conf for the correct
nameserver entry which I your case will be the IP of the router, i guess.

I know that I am connected, because iwconfig prints out a Datarate and also the configuration of the router confirms a connection.
DHCP-Client is enabled in the Firewall.
I don't have a file /etc/resolve.conf, there is only a resolv.conf in that directory. Its content is simply:
Code:

Ok sorry /etc/resolv.conf

then go on and add a additional line
nameserver 192.168.2.1 or whatever your router IP is.

Okay, resolv.conf now reads:
Code:
search site
nameserver 192.168.178.1
However, I still don't receive an IP.

okay...
other way around. If you specify static ip so
like
IP: 192.168.178.5
Subnet: 255 and so on
and gateway 192.168.178.1

do you can use it ? does it work then?

Is the device in /etc/sysconfig/networking/...
configured for DHCP ?

/etc/sysconfig/network/dhcp looks good to me.
No luck with the static IP, the status "unavailable" remains.

okay so I guess ndiswrapper would be a better solution.
Instead of the monkey stuff.
