[driverloader] Unable to ping anyone else

if you get an IP address from your DHCP server, it means that your wireless 
connection works properly.

The problem seems to be related to your network/IP configuration and not
DriverLoader. Make sure that your default gateway is setup properly and
verify your access point's configuration.

You should supply the output from the following commands so we can provide 
more help :

# cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-*
# cat /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-*
# cat /etc/network/interfaces
# ip addr
# ip route
# ifconfig
# iwconfig
# iwlist scanning
