Wireless network not working
The ethernet works flawlessly.
Now, the wireless connection is another story:
I've set up my wireless connection by using the KDE Control Center -> Internet & Network -> Wireless Network manager. In the Config 1 tab, I set up the details for my network, select 'Load Preset configuration on KDE startup' checkbox, select Config 1 as the 'Configuration to load:' and hit Apply.
Then, upon booting, I get the following messages (this is an exerpt from my /var/log/syslog file):
Feb 27 22:27:50 tharsan kernel: eth1: No xmit handler. Feb 27 22:27:50 tharsan kernel: e1000: eth0: e1000_watchdog: NIC Link is Up 100 Mbps Full Duplex Feb 27 22:27:50 tharsan kernel: eth1: No xmit handler. Feb 27 22:27:50 tharsan last message repeated 10 times
Now, shortly after starting KDE, if I open KWiFiManager, it tells me that I am indeed connected to my wireless network (as setup in the Control Center) but strangely I have no IP address.
I did boot into Windows (which uses the same configuration - my router does not use encryption [for now], only MAC address filtering) and I did successfully acquire the correct IP from my router in Windows, so I should be able to in Linux.
On the side, how can I force my eth1 interface to attempt to acquire an IP address manually (i.e. some command I can run)?
Thank you very much in advance

You can asign an adress to your card by running this command:
iwconfig eth1 ip_adress
iwconfig eth1 netmask netmask_adress
Also you can set channel, mode, essid (name) and other parameters of the card, so look at man iwconfig.
