Wireless USB D-Link DWA-111 - Can't connect


Hello

I can't get my wlan working. I think it looks like it should work but when I unplug the tp-cable I can't connect the internet.

Could someone please help me?

EDIT: I'm using Slackware 12.1

Code:
root@local:~# lsusb
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 07d1:3c06 D-Link System

As long as your wireless device is working, you should be able to just use this program.

I used to use the same method but after I found this, there's no need to go back!

Can you connect with encryption turned off?

Also, you may need to run your DHCP client to get an IP address. Not sure what Slackware uses, dhclient or the other one I can't remember right now.
