OK. Here is something that is really strange. I walked away from my
laptop for a few minutes and when I came back I ran an "ifup wlan0". I
received a message that says "interface wlan0 already configured." So,
I ran an "ifconfig -a"
Now, my wireless router is attached to my wired router as a separate
subnet off on of the LAN ports. wlan0 picked up an IP address from the
dhcp server on my wired subnet rather than the dhcp server off my
wireless router. Does the dhcp server on the wireless router work?
Yes. I can get IP addresses from it if I boot my laptop into Windows.
How weird is that? So, I have an IP address on my wireless connection
but it isn't connected to my wireless router.
My wireless subnet is 192.168.2.0. My wired subnet is 192.168.1.0. My
laptop has an IP address of 192.168.1.101.
I'm having problems getting wireless up and running on my laptop.
Here is the appropriate portion of /etc/network/interfaces:
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
Here is my /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf:
pairwise= CCMP TKIP
I have tried this without "mode" and "group". I have also tried this
wpa_supplicant is running.
Wayne:/var/log# ps -A | grep wpa
14072 ? 00:00:00 wpa_supplicant
ifup wlan0 brings the interface up and dhcp discovery runs as it should.
I just get lease offers. I have tried this both with secured and
unsecured access points, and I never recieve dhcp offers.
Anyone have any idea as to what I am doing wrong? This wireless thing
is new to me.
I have to say, I am thoroughly confused as to why this is happening.
