    Hi @ll

    I have a problem with setting up my wireless lan card. Everything worked fine. Wlan0 is showing, with iwconfig or ifconfig i can see the card, also the link led of the card is on, and the acitiviy led is blinking, but i can't ping anything. And the adress of ap is correct, when i type iwconfig i can see the mac adress of the ap and the sidd is also correct: i use default. I turned off the encryption because i think its easier for the first time to set it up. I seriously dont know why i cant ping anything. Does somebody know why?

    I am using Fedora core 2 with a patched 16k stack kernel from linuxant.com

      i now tried the card under winxp on the same machine, its working like charm. Even if i set it on dhcp, under linux with dhcp, he can't find the ap and the adress of the ap gets fautly : ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
      when i define the adress of my card and gateway and so on, he can find the ap, but no transmission is avaible

      here ifconfig and iwconfig, when i set my card manually: (not dhcp)
