Hi All,
i just tried the snapshots dated 12-08 , install went smoothly.
I'm configuring my interface using static IP address and i'm able to
scan for networks using iwlist scan
however, it seems i cannot associate with my AP. The AP is configured in
hidden mode ( i.e no ESSID broadcast ).
The iwlist scan shows my AP network but not the ESSID. I'm setting the
correct ESSID using iwconfig eth2 essid 'myid'
but no traffic can go trhough ( i see outgoing packet count increasing
but no incoming packets ).
Has anyone managed to get the thing working with hidden ESSID ?
Thanks ...
PS: Congratulation to the people who did this wonderful work ! keep on
the great work !
