For some reason the computer will not connect to the AP unless I connect to the router from another computer and go through the wizard again. I don't have to change anything, but It resets the router. Under the log of the router, when I don't go through the wizard, i see:
Dec/18/2004 11:55:51 Wireless PC connected (mac address)
After I go through the wizard, i see the folllowing messages,
ap mode start
wireless pc connected
dhcp request success
Now, it seems as though when I go through the normal proccess to connect, it somehow lacks the ability to send a dhcp request. Is there some command that I am missing? this is how i set everything up:
iwconfig wlan0 mode Managed
iwconfig wlan0 essid network
iwconfig wlan0 channel 6
/sbin/ifconfig wlan0 192.168.0.10 up
/sbin/route add default gw 192.168.0.1 wlan0
Also, are these commands required each time I want to start my network? Whenever I do a 'ndiswrapper -m' I get 'modprobe config already contains alias directive'. Naturally i try 'pico /etc/modprobe.conf' only to find that the file is empty.
Any help or direction would be appreciated.
I usually don't like posting problems here because I generally am able to find the solution before I get a helpful response but I don't know about this one.
