dhcpcd wlan0 doesn't assign ip address
i've been trying to get my wlan up and running for days now but nothing so far. hopefully someone out can help me out.
Here's what I'm running:
Intel(R) PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini PCI Adapter
first, dhcpcd wlan0 doesn't assign an ip address.
second, whenever i turn on the physical switch for the wireless it noticibly degrades the performance of my laptop. to the point where text cant be inputed fluently into a console. im not sure where this problem is coming from. possibly ndiswrapper.
any help is greatly appreciated.
