Wireless Card IP nightmare
Forum n00b, anyway...
Linksys wireless card
installed the drivers using rpm installation of drivers from www.linuxant.com
KWiFiManager says the card works and detects the network
YaST lets me configure the card for DHCP or static
"Local IP: unavailible"
I ran iwspy <my wireless card> <IP address of my router> and it returned
something along the lines of IP address not working with DHCP
I setup a static IP for my card, using default subnet masks and DNS servers
iwspy " " returns failed
tried to simply ping the router
The router recognizes my compy's MAC address, but not the IP address I assigned it statically.
I have 20 days until this 30 day trial license is up. I'd like to get this resolved before then.
Any help would be a god-send.:D
