    help connecting to my schools wpa


    hey all, i'm using ubuntu and i'm trying to connect to my schools wpa networking. i'm using...or trying to use...wpa_supplicant. I've read how to configure the configuration file and what not, and i can get wpa_supplicant to connect ( i can run wireshark and see all the network traffic ), but i'm not getting assigned an ip address or something because i cannot ping anything, cannot use html or anything. i've tried setting it mannualy, but i still have a problem, i would really really appreciate any help.

    here is what wpa_supplicant says when i run it:

    myuser@myPC:~$ sudo wpa_supplicant -Dmadwifi -iath0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
    Trying to associate with 00:02:2d:1e:8f:21 (SSID='WATERVIEW' freq=2462 MHz)

    so it acts like its connected, but dhcp or something isn't working. it says something about ssl failing, so that could be a problem too.

    any help is greatly appreciated.
    -thanks

    Try

    sudo dhclient iath0

    Are you using an Atheros card? I found that mine just refused to work with WPA at all!
    Finished building PC using PC Pro's A-List! Will add specs soon =)

    yes im using atheros.
    i tried the command, for some reason i still don't get assigned an ip address or have any network connection, even though it says that its connected.
