    Red face Netgear WG111v2 (USB) DHCP(?) issues with Karmic


    Hi Everyone, having some frustrating issues getting the WG111v2 usb dongle to work with Karmic NBR. Using an HP mini 1030NR.

    I have tried Wicd, Ndiswrapper (with various drivers) and the native RTL8187 driver. Can always see the APs and connect, obtain an IP address, and see the AP's MAC..... but I'm never able to download any information... the connection just hangs.

    Other people report that the WG111v2 works out of the box with Karmic.

    I've lost the receipt..... :o0
    I've disabled security on the AP.
    I've tried a live USB of the latest standard Ubuntu, with the same results.

    I hope someone can help - I'm going crazy!

    Here's some terminal output.....

    IWconfig

    If anyone has the slightest idea what is going on here, I would be very much indebted to you. And your karma will no doubt benefit!

    Cheers.

    While I am not a wireless expert per se. I have encountered problems with the latest Wicd 1.7 in AntiX and Debian users have also. One way I fixed this was to uninstall wicd 1.7 and use wicd 1.5 instead. Another thing was instead of using Automatic in Prefernces>Properties in wicd, (I am in Puppy Linux right now so I might have that reversed) I used dhclient instead and wext in driver also. Hope that works for you.

    I would also wait and see if waterhead or reed9 has any better info for you if rhey weigh in on this thread. Good Luck with it. Rok

    Thanks, though I don't think it's a wicd issue, as the native Network manager produces exactly the same results.

    Tried installing 1.5 and changing the settings you suggest, but no joy.

    Okay, here's the output from the little script you guys were kind enough to write.

    Incidentally, there's an internal wireless card (Broadcom4312) which I've blacklisted the driver for. It doesn't perform at all well with my router, and I was told that the wg111v2 dongle not only worked out of the box, but would work much better with the router....

    The broadcom card seems to show as "wlanmaster" even if it is disabled..... could this be anything to do with the problem?

    Thanks in advance,

    Cwis.
