Problem with DHCP/Wireless on Backtrack 4
 
I am trying to connect to my wireless at home and cannot for the life of me get it to obtain correctly. Here is my input to it.


root@bt:~# iwconfig wlan0 essid LEDUC.NET
root@bt:~#iwconfig wlan0 channel 6
root@bt:~# ifconfig wlan0 up
root@bt:~# dhcpcd wlan0
err, wlan0: poll: No such file or directory
root@bt:~# dhcpcd.sh: interface wlan0 has been brought down

(try it again)
root@bt:~# dhcpcd wlan0
err, wlan0: poll: No such file or directory
root@bt:~# dhcpcd.sh: interface wlan0 has been brought downroot
(and again, but with a self assigned IP)
root@bt:~# dhcpcd wlan0
err, wlan0: timed out
warn, wlan0: using I{V4LL address 169.254.1547.80
dhcpcd.sh: interface wlan0 has been configured with new IP=169.254.1547.80

I am using a D-link DWLG510. My connection is open. From what I know it DOES use the athros chip. Any ideas as to what could be causing something like this?

Thanks
