Can no longer connect to wireless access point
I'm just started using Fedora 3 on a Thinkpad 600E and ran into this problem. At home I have a Linksys WAP11 802.11b access point that uses WEP. The Thinkpad uses a Senao 2511 CD+ EXT2 802.11b PCMCIA card. At installation, Fedora 3 recognized the card and configured it correctly. Everything worked great. My ifcfg-eth0 looked like this:
I then connected the laptop to a public wireless network that used DHCP and no WEP. I made a copy of my original ifcfg-eth0 and named it ifcfg-eth0-original. I then changed the settings of ifcfg-eth0 to the following:
Everything worked great. I connected to the public network and got an address with no problem. When I went back home I deleted the ifcfg-eth0 file and renamed ifcfg-eth0-original to ifcfg-eth0.
The card connected to the access point but wouldn't associate even though I was using the same parameters that I used successfully before. Interestingly, I can't ping the access point (192.168.0.1) but I can ping the Ethernet card that the access point is plugged into (192.168.0.5).
Any ideas would be most appreciated.
