Well...I took the firewall off to take one variable out. And this showed
up on me logs (tail -f /var/log/messages):
Jan 3 21:31:58 linux dhcpcd: broadcasting DHCP_REQUEST for
Jan 3 21:32:08 linux dhcpcd: timed out waiting for DHCP_ACK
Jan 3 21:32:08 linux dhcpcd: broadcasting DHCP_DISCOVER
That IP is the one that I was getting with the madwifi drivers under
Mandrake. But as you can see here the IP is still not getting assign.
wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:0C:41:AD:D3:21
UP BROADCAST NOTRAILERS MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:0 errors:150 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
This is my current ifcfg-wlan0:
It feels like this is closer than ever....but it is not happening!!!! I
just don't know what else to look for.
Again, any help is more than welcome, and thanks again to those who
stopped and offered some already.
