[SOLVED] Failur to connect to a known network
I am using Mandriva 2009.1 KDE 4.2
I was on a wirless network, and suddenly it died. When I went back to try to connect it wouldn't work.
I can connect to another, different network, but not the first one.
When I launched the network center from the terminal and tried to connect to the original network I got the following output.
Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) : SET failed on device wlan0 ; Device or resource busy. got connection status event: interface_down wlan0 got connection status event: link_up wlan0 got connection status event: dhcp_request wlan0
So, uh, what is the problem and how do I fix it?

It's not my network, but I can hack into the admin page. But not until after the weekend.
What am I looking for and what should I do about it?

The admin accidentally turned on the MAC filter.
I fixed it.
