Hi Bryan,

The problem is most likely related to the IP routing. Edit the file 
'/etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-wlan0' and make sure you have the 
following lines :

After making the changes if necessary, you may restart your wireless 
interface with the following commands in a root shell :
ifdown wlan0
ifup wlan0

If it still doesn't work, please send the output of "dldrconfig 
--dumpdiag" to support at linuxant.com
