My network card is detected and running and when I use the Network tool in System->Administration I can set my eeid and password and everything seems to work but Idon't get an IP-address and the card cannot find any AP.
I have tryed NetworkManager but it dosen't show my wireless connection and when I doubleclick the nm-icon nothings happen (some forums tells me to do so and then choose add connection).
I then tried WIFI-radar and it shows the wireless connection but I can't do anything with it.
I then tried another graphical tool that I don't remember the nam for but that tool shows me the wireless connection and it shows me the signal strength which is good but I still don't get an IP-address and therefore I cannot connect to Internet for example.
I'm stuck and I cannot find any solution to my problem at any forum. From what I can tell I don't have to use any wrapper for windows driver or wap_Supplicant with my settings and hardare...
For whats it worth I can use the card perfectly in Windows so there is no router failure or other hardware failure...
