Troubleshooting Wlan with RH9
I'll start by admitting that I'm a Linux newbie, and not a networking expert either...
I have installed RH9 on a machine, and have also installed a Belkin F5D6050 USB Wireless device. I also installed the amtel wlan driver from the sf.net atmelwlandriver project.
I have been following the directions for installing the Netgear MA101, from the sf.net project home page. making changes for my device as needed.
All goes well up to a point. The driver builds and installs. The iwconfig command shows the device, and that it has found my access point. The associations page on the router shows the MAC of the F5D6050.
However, when I try to dhclient command, it fails to get an IP address from the router.
I tried the manual IP address route as well. When I do this, I am able to ping myself by IP address, but I cannot ping the router by IP address.
As I said, I am both a Linux and networking newbie, so I'm not even sure what to try next. Can someone give me some ideas o things to try, or point me to a good troubleshooting guide?
