Difficulty connecting to Netgear Router


Hi,

I am trying to connect to a Netgear 814 router. I am using a Belkin Wireless F5D6050 USB card. I have installed this card using the Atmel driver.

I ran
ifconfig wlan0 up
iwconfig wlan0 ssid any
iwconfig wlan0 ap any
iwconfig key xxxxxxxxxx

and then I ran dhclient wlan0

however, I get lots of "activity" for this.

I get DHCPDISCOVER on wlan0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 7, etc..
send_packet: Network is down.
...
.

i also get /sbin/hclient-script: configuration for wlan0 not found.

However, I created this file and left it empty (default values).


Is there something else I need to configure to obtain an IP from my router via DHCP?


Any help, comments are much appreciated!!

Steve
