    Wireless problems - not receiving packets


    I am running Mandriva LE 2006 with a D-Link DWL-G630 wireless card.
    I have installed the drivers and can detect my access point (SMC). However, when I try
    to connect to the router, I can send packets but not received them.

    I have verified that encryption has been turned off and that Automatic IP/DHCP has
    been enabled.

    The output of iwconfig is as follows:

    lo no wireless extensions.
    eth1 no wireless extensions.
    eth0 no wireless extensions.
    wlan0 IEEE 802.11g ESSID:"SMC" Nickname:"localhost"
    Mode:Managed Frequency:2.437 GHz Access Point: 00:04:E2:98:C4:78

    Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0

    The output from iwlist scan is as follows:

    Address: 00:04:E2:98:C4:78
    ESSID:"SMC"
    Protocol:IEEE 802.11g

    Bit Rate:54 Mb/s
    Extra:bcn_int=100

    (Unknown Wireless Token 0x8C05)

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    ok, so you are associated with the access point, what does this command return:
    Code:
    route
    ping -c 4 your_access_point_ip_address
    run the commands as root.

    sorry if this seems like a stupid question...

    by the IP address of the access point, you mean the IP address that came
    with the router right?
    If not, what would be the best way of determining the IP?

    Thanks

    well unless you changed the ip address of the router, you can use the ip address which it is set to as default.

    A way you can determine it's ip address is as follows:
    Open up a command prompt in Windows and run the following command:
    Code:
    ipconfig /all
    look for an entry called gateway, that should be the ip address of your router.
