    Wifi Woes


    I recently obtained a new dsl modem/wireless router for my home network. The two windows machines in my house connect fine, and my ubuntu linux box connects fine, but iwconfig lists it as being a 11Mb/s connection instead of 54
    Code:
    ath0      IEEE 802.11g  ESSID:"ESSID"  
              Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.437 GHz  Access Point: 00:14:95:92:10:D1   
              Bit Rate:11 Mb/s   Tx-Power:18 dBm   Sensitivity=0/3  
              Retry:off   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
              Power Management:off
              Link Quality=26/94  Signal level=-69 dBm  Noise level=-95 dBm
              Rx invalid nwid:735  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
              Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:0   Missed beacon:0
    Also, I can't get a fourth computer, running xubuntu with a usb wireless adapter, to connect at all. I set the wep key, essid, and frequency with iwconfig, but when I try to use dhclient I get the following error:
    No working leases in persistent database - sleeping.
    I probably just did something dumb...can anyone help me out?

    Do you have any other wifi networks around you? If you do the first thing i'd try is changing the channel your router broadcasts on.

    As for your other problem... i don't know as much about networking as i used to.
