The WLAN card is configured like this:
wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:40:05:CB:B0:17

The output of iwconfig is:

My AP is configured with IP 192.168.0.1
acx100 driver version: v0.2.0pre8
Wireless extension version: 16
chip name: ACX100
radio type: 0x11
form factor: 0x00
EEPROM version: 0x04
firmware version: Rev 1.9.8.b (0x01020505)
BSS table has 1 entries:
BSS 0 BSSID 00:80:c8:b0:89:32 ESSID id channel 2 WEP yes Cap 0x11 SIR 81 SNR 57
status: 4 (ASSOCIATED)
The dmesg command shows the correct loading of the firmware and it finds the AP and authenticates and associates with it. Everything seems to be ok.
Furthermore, the laptop's WLAN card is seen in the AP's logs. The MAC address is seen there.. even the pinging seems to come to the AP, but nothing is returned to the laptop. The AP's WLAN LED flashes as the pinging is sent (not flashing when it is not sending pings). I am not using and firewall of any kind and the AP is successfully in use by another WLAN laptop.
So....what might be wrong here? Any ideas?
