Problem with dhcpcd on encrypted wifi connection (non-enc is fine)
I'm writing this through a laptop with a Netgear/Atheros 5212 so I'm pretty happy as is.
However, we just got WEP on our network and I have been unable to obtain
a IP address through our router.
The card will connect, the key is correctly processed and iwconfig gives me the AP data and a descent reception.
** BUT dhcpcd stalls and dhcpcd -t 10 -d ath0 results
only in the MAC address, no IP address and I'm unable to ping or go online. **

XP machine connects fine without any problem or tweaks.
Am I omitting something?
Thanks for any help,

no I've made a couple of logon scripts for various WiFi locations.
The scripts for the encrypted router includes
iwconfig ath0 key restricted s:XXXXXXXXXX
I'm not on my own computer right now, so I can't post the whole script but it's the same as all other working ones except for this addition.
Should I copy/paste it somehow?

Yes pasting your script would help, someone might see something in their that is a mistake.
Sorry I couldn't be more help.
