I got connected to the base station and can ping my LAN but I can't ping
anything on the Internet yet. The /etc/resolv.conf file has the proper
DNS addresses and with eth0 active I can connect to the Internet. Route
is properly configured but the DNS resolving is not working nor pinging
an Internet IP address directly.
What I have been doing has been entering in the wrong information at the
wrong places. With all the help everyone and the suggestions along the
way, I have been understanding wireless much more than when I had
Using the base station utility and retrieving the hex password helped
out tremendously and entering it as the key which I have been entering
the wrong on into the airport card and that is where the whole mess came
up. I did not understand that entering the information using iwconfig
actually changes the stored information on the card.
Thank you so much everyone for your help with this.
