Strange wifi happenings
I have a lucent based 802.11b chip that was built into my gateway 600 laptop.
It was detected fine by SuSE 9.1 pro.
Yet, problems arise. If i boot straight to linux on any network, I get an ip address, the ssid, channel, and all sorts of goodies that prove I have found the network. I can even ping machines on the local network. Yet, it all ends there. I cannot ping out.
Now here comes the weirdness.
If I boot windows xp, and browse for a bit, then restart into linux, I can browse fine (I'm doing it right now).
Am I missing something?
