Hello All in my never ending quest to get wireless card working under Linux I ran into a problem. I was following the instructions found here
I have SuSe 9.1 installed. i installed ndiswrapper off the SuSe cd (pro version). i run ndiswrapper -i and i install the drivers from the cd that came with the card.
I do ndiswrapper -l to see the following
Installed ndis drivers:bcmwl5 present
so i do modprobe ndiswrapper it does its thing and takes me back to the prompt.
i check the log to find the info that is suppose to be in the log file.
I do the iwconfig and get the following
wlan0 IEEE 802.11g ESSID:"" Nickname:"linux"
Mode:Managed Frequency:2.447GHz Access Point: FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF

Following the instructions I do iwlist wlan0 scan
here is the output

iwconfig wlan0 mode automatic (it does its thing)
iwconfig wlan0 key restricted **********<------ (WEP key here)
iwconfig wlan0 essid myessid
and last but not least (and my problem is here)
wlan0 Starting DHCP Client Daemon on wlan0... . . . . . no IP address yet... backgrounding.
And there is my problem I tried over and over to figure out that problem I have goggled the hell out of this topic, but no success. Any help as always is appreciated. Thank you
