i finally got my driver working with ndiswrapper. and i did all my setup with iwconfig ( the network name, managed mode, wep key) but still im not getting a connection, when i do iwlist scan, my network is visible.
is there something im missing here
here is a ss
i did no ping reply. The cards LED is lit up, and when i do that scan command i do see the network
Can you tell me which provider you are using ?Originally Posted by n00b
are you getting Static/Dynamic IP Address ?
# iwconfig wlan0 ap 00:0D:3A:24:C2D
i have cable internet
wall -> modem --> router -->computer & wireless
ip address is dynamic, using DHCP
EDIT:: going to go try dhcpcleint wlan0 command
( i did it before but gave me errors or something brb with ss )
What does your /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-wlan0 file look like?

Hope this helps.
