Configure wireless network card -- driver already running

Configure wireless network card -- driver already running

Post by Daniel Bme » Sun, 09 Oct 2005 23:02:57


Hello NG,
it's me again and this time my WLAN is running fine. Thanks to
Ndiswrapper I got it working. Unfortunetely I don't know how to
configure it, because it was created it by Ndiswrapper and so automatic
setup was run.

I will explain my network to you: I've got a router with a DHCP server.
Its internal IP is 192.168.2.100. Under Windows DHCP is running, no MAC
filtering or connection problems. I would like Debian Linux (2.6 kernel)
to use DHCP the same way. Everything is done by wlan0, no cable on eth0.

I hope these information are everything you need to help me. Please tell
me how to get DHCP client working that I can go surfing the web and so on.

Usually you should use dhcpcd to get the IP address. But where to use
it depends on your distribution.

Anyway 'man dhcpcd' will help to set the right options.

Hello Giovanni,
I read man dhclient, because this is the tool my system has installed.

The dhclient is now running but gets no IP adress. The output looks
similar to the following:

DHCPDISCOVER [...] on port 67 interval xx

while xx is a increasing number with range from 1 to about 60 at the
point of timeout.

Why there isn't any DHCP offer? The DHCP server running on the router
should send an offer to my client. I couldn't find out, if I have to
write anything into dhclient.conf to get it working.

Please help me!

Daniel

Check thet there are no firewall rules blocking UDP ports
67 and 68 for the WLAN card.

This check applies to bothe the Linux box and the WLAN access point
+ DHCP server.
