help connecting wireless card to AP
I am new to wireless linux.
I am attempting to connect my wireless interface to my AP.
1st I enable the wlan interface:
ifconfig ra0 up
2nd I scan nearby APs:
iwlist ra0 scan
3rd I attempt to connect to wireless AP (i'm assuming this is where I am missing something vital.):
iwconfig ra0 mode managed key s:mypassword ap 00:60:1D:01:23:45
The link light on the card does not turn and `dhclient ra0` does not receive any response to the sent DHCPDISCOVER.
card - ralink chipset; belkin pc card 'N Wireless Notebook Card' F5D8013
ap - netgear (dont know model off hand & not at home) B/G wireless router
ap is using WPA security
Any help is appreciated.
