I have a recent ..12weeks old snapshot. for wireless I use an ath5k type of controller. /boot/common/settings/network/wireless_networks is set up correctly
When I go to the network preferences menu
atheroswifi is disabled after every boot up. I must enable it. When I enable it,by selecting DHCP and look at system log, DHCP_Discover get all the correct values for resolv.conf (nameserver), gateway and the "your_address" After DHCP_DICOVER a DHCP_REQUEST is sent to the "your_address" this also gets the correct values but does not get a value for the "your_address" This may be alright???, but when I execute an ifconfig the device net address "your_address" is missing. The net does not work. The DNS (nameserver) address cannot be pinged. Any ideas?
Note: without /boot/common/settings/network/wireless_network and using ifconfig <device> join net name password, will nor work either. Using it often complian that atheroewifi is nut a wlan. Doing an ifconfig <device> up followed by the ifconfig <device> join net name password, will get accepted, but as I wrote without the correct DHCP address. The scan operation always works and my network name displayed.
