Wireless Network Link Established - No webpage though


Ok.. I got the version 4 of the linksys WMP54G - it detected it in hardware in Yast.

I configured it w/o loading any drivers and it sees my ESSID and has a 96% signal quality.

When I go to

cat /proc/net/wireless

it shows

interface ra0
Status 0000
link 86
level 65
noise 0

missed beacon 0



what am i missing to get it to work?? Firefox says page not found! I also have it on autodetect and its not picking up any IP addresses.. could that be the problem?

Are you using dhcp or static IPs?

Do you have a valid IP and dns settings?

i have the option to automatically obtain an IP.. maybe that's why its not working?

How do I get my IP address..doesn't my linksys router have to assign me one?

Type 'ifconfig' in a console to see if you have been assigned one.

well my card is recognised as ath0
ifconfig ath0 up
if the above doesn't work you need to modprobe your card. See yast hardware manager for module details (usually has a system tray icon telling you what you need to modprobe)

if you're using dhcp,
/sbin/dhcpd
