Can't Ping wireless router...
I am almost through the wireless adapter installation from hell, but I can't get to the finish line. I can't ping my router yet, or see the Internet. I also see something strange (I think) in the iwconfig readout.
I am following Craig's ACX100/111 Guide (excellent, by the way) because I have that chipset in my card. My specs are below:
Netgear Wireless Router WGR614 v4 on 192.168.0.1
Netgear WG311 v2 adapter card
I've modified start_net in the scripts directory. I've specified the ESSID, Channel, and DHCP settings. I've tried the USE_DHCP=0 and 1 with similar results. I should be using 1, since my router is providing the IPs.
I don't have anything setup for WEP since the card doesn't support it.
When I run iwconfig, I think I should see "Access Point:" followed by a MAC address. Instead, I see "Cell" followed by a MAC address. Not sure if this is a problem or not.
When I try and ping my router using ping -c 4 -I wlan0 192.168.0.1 I get results for the first line but destination is unreachable for icmp_seq=1,2,3 and 4. I see 4 packets transmitted, 0 received.
Anyone want to help a noob out?
Thanks for the help.
