"No IPV6 routers present"


I'm attempting to connect to a belkin54g wireless AP from the laptop in my signature. I'm thinking the error message in the thread title has something to do with it, as it is what I see in the debug for dhcpcd.

Is the AP I'm using an IPV6, and if not, do I need to configure my wireless to search for something else.
The card is configured with ndiswrapper and working fine, but iwlist still finds nothing either.

that error usually doesn't mean anything at all except that you have extra networkiing support built in. I would need the rest of your output to know for sure. The sort of connectivity problem that you're having is probably not related, but anyone helping you will need more informaiton about the sort of problem you're having.

I have noconnection... simple as!

ndiswrapper presents both hardware and drivers as being present, wlan0 comes up under both ifconfig (if I tell it to) and iwconfig. I can set the frequency etc. to the right channel uner iwconfig, but dhcpcd returns "No IPV6 routers present" when I look at the log, and iwlist wlan0 scan can't find any access points.

Does this mean I need to fiddle with things on the AP end of things?

what that may mean is that you're not using the correct driver for your wireless card, that you need to verify that you're using the precise version designed for your card.

What is the device string (from lspci) for your wireless card? YOu may want to cross-refrence that oin the ndiswrapper site, to download the driver.

See if you can manually set the essid
Code:
iwconfig wlan0 essid default
if that sets, than tha's a good sign the wireless driver is correct. If it doesn't, try a different driver.

If it sets to that, set the card to the correct ssid for your network, see if DHCP will lease an address.
Also, see if there is a MAC address for your access point in the iwconfig output for your card.

Hmm... I've been able to change just about everything on my iwconfig bar my essid... but I've used the drivers for my laptop off of the acer website 0_o;
I'll give those things a go... thanks! ^_^

EDIT: at the moment it gives my AP MAC address as 00:00:00:... etc
Yeah... cos that's right!

It would appear that perhaps the drivers are not working as they should... My wlan is the unknwn ethernet... I've checked on the ndiswrapper site,a dn I've already tried two of the drivers... I'm about to try a third one.

Does anyone (at all) know of a driver that will work with this laptop? All the ones that have been rcommended to me do not work with ndiswrapper, and most of them do not consist of enough .sys files to work with LinuxAnt.

If anyone has/ has had this laptop and has had the wlan working, PLEASE tell me!!!

it it hasn't got a device string, I'd install windows, and try to get windows to give you some information on it. Make it work in windows. keep hold of the driver, and use it with ndiswrapper.
