Re: Squeeze - Can't connect to wireless router

It started working magically. I don't know how, but suddenly network manager found all networks around and connected sucessfully.

Now I have a strange problem. Everytime I want to connect to something - doesn't matter if it's web, APT, IRC, IM, ping or anything, it takes a while (several seconds) trying to resolv the address, like if the DNS is very slow. After that it goes normally.
It's normally with any other distro or OS.

Doing a quick google search I found many complaints about that in Squeeze. One suggests adding 'options single-request' to /etc/resolv.conf. This is it: http://www.mail-archive.com/debian-user@lists.debian.org/msg560847.html

But isn't that file overwritten automatically?

Sorry, Dirk, I couldn't test yet what you suggested. Tonight I'll see if that makes any difference and I'll also paste here my /etc/network/interfaces.

...those things mostly happen whef your wireless configuration isn't
correct., for example the wrong "pair-wise" or  "group" parameter .Then
you get connected but immediately are disconnected again.

But before changing something:

When you run your command "wpa_supplicant" with the -c option you should
give it the full path-lenght as a parameter, for example:

 => "wpa_supplicant -Dwext -iwlan0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf"
or whereever your config file is located. Put this also into your
"/etc/network/interfaces" to the wlan0 interface block if you are not
using network-manager or wicd as i presume.

Try this first.
