madwifi madness help!
I having a bad time with madwifi and my new wirless card. I thought I had researched this well but maybe not. I bought a gigabyte WIAG02 mini pci card for my laptop, madwifi site said that it worked under linux. The card works perfectly under windows on the laptop so probably not a hardware problem.
Okay, I installed the lastest version of the madwifi drivers, this might be the mistake as I probably sould have kept the ones that came with suse10.0?
Everything seems to work fine...
ifconfig lists the card correctly.
iwconfig also lists the card correctly and lets me set keys, and essids etc.
I can scan for the networks in the area, and it lists them.
But can I get it to connect to any network no. I have tried three different networks in different places. Uni, home and my girlfriends. I can never get an IP address, dhcpcd just times out with giving an error message. (there is an error in the syslog, something about IPv6 timing out the IP shouldn't be IPv6) I have tried setting a ip in the correct range, that didn't work either.
iwlist key gave something interesting, where the encription types are listed wep is not there, but that is what I need to connect to these networks, and the card supports it (works in windows). wep modules are running.
I removed all the madwifi stuff and tried to install again, same problems. I haven't found the original suse packages if they existed.I have had wirless working on this computer before with an old interstill card.
Anyone got any ideas? Or know where I can get suse packages?
