dhcpcd kills wlan0
So i've been running my wireless card just perfectly under Slackware 9.0 for the last 6 months or so. This week I tried to upgrade to Slack 10 only to run into some major problems.
I'm using the linux-wlan-ng drivers for my prism2_usb card.
I issue all of the proper wlanctl-ng commands and can connect to a wireless access point. (for example):
$ modprobe prism2_usb prism2_doreset=1
$ wlanctl-ng wlan0 lnxreq_ifstate ifstate=enable
$ wlanctl-ng wlan0 lnxreq_autojoin ssid=linksys authtype=opensystem
If I then run iwconfig it shows me that i am connected to the access point.
Then I run:
$ dhcpcd wlan0
This much would run PERFECTLY under slack 9.
Now, this command gets an IP address, as I can see with `ifconfig`. HOWEVER, when I now issue an `iwconfig` command shows me that the wireless interface is now DISAPPEARED!! (WTF?!)
Though I have an IP, pinging the router does not work.
