DHCP not working with rt2500

Asked by reyjeffe on 2007-05-21

I'm trying to connect to my wireless network with a RaLink rt2500 card. I am using KWiFiManager and when I go to look for wireless networks, I find my local wireless network, but when i go to connect to it, it does not give me an IP address. The operating mode is the same for both the access point and the card. I need some way to get an IP address.

¿Have you check is you are associated to wifi network?
You can see it with iwconfig command, after all you procedure connection with kwifiManager.
If you are associated you will see some like this:

IEEE 802.11g ESSID:"your_wifi_network"
Mode:Managed Frequency:2.437 GHz Access Point: XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX

If you are really associated, you can run the dhclient command for adquire a dhcp IP from your server.

If you problem persist, I would need the protection type of your network (WPA-PSK , WPA-AES , WPA-TKIP , WEP Nothing or others).

I am associated with my network, it tells me the access points MAC address and frequency along with mode but when I run dhclient, it doesn't receive any answers. The protection type is none. I hope this helps clarify things.

Check if this command solve it
dhclient dispositive
dispositive is like ra0 or eth1 and you can get it with iwconfig.

Can you help with this problem?
