nator@nator-laptop:~$ more /etc/network/interfaces
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth1
iface eth1 inet dhcp

auto eth2
iface eth2 inet dhcp

auto ath0
iface ath0 inet dhcp

iface wlan0 inet dhcp
wireless-essid itoanke2
wireless-key 22775f13c8eq197028f52bc569

auto wlan0

iface eth0 inet dhcp

linksys WRT54G access point is connected to roadrunner cable modern, and what I am needing help with is how to get ip address from the dhcp.

Try to assign a static IP address. DHCP support is having some troubles.

Take a look at this page: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs
It has a lot of information about WiFi.

You can also install network-manager-gnome or wifi-radar packages.

Can you help with this problem?
