Unhappy Cannot connect wireless Yellow Dog Linux 6.1 on PS3


Hi, I Just installed Yellow Dog Linux 6.1 on my PS3 (couldn't download the YDL 6.2 iso) and cannot get the wireless to work. I am having trouble obtaining the IP address.
In addition, I installed all the updates available as of 10/25/09 via ethernet cable hoping the action would resolve the problem but did not work. Do I have to update to Yellow Dog Linux 6.2? if so, Can someone please help me and guide me through the steps or post a link?

Hi,

Please post the output of 'ifconfig' and 'iwconfig'.

Anyway, are you using network manager? if yes, try wicd. It is better and much easier.
