Trouble connecting to router
February 19, 2010 12:40PM
Hey,
I've installed the latest Elive Version and tried to connect to my router. Network Connector shows me the different Hotspots, that are available, but if I try to connect to my router, it says "Connecting", but nothing else happens. So I'm pretty sure, that the wireless device is installed, but there are some problems when I try to connect. Maybe somebody has had a simliar problem and found a solution. Thanks

Is it key secured? (try double check if it valid). Is your AP in range and shown in list?
Sometimes it help to change channel number on AP as well

I had similar troubles - see my posts "bcm4312"
When i try to connect in live-mode, netconnector - sometimes - says "connecting" and does not seem to connect.
Nevertheless I can access the internet after this "futile" procidure....

in your case, try, as root, in konsole: iwlist scan. This command should show how your wlan-device is recognized, e.g. wlan0, wlan1 or eth1 etc.
you could then use this information to do, again as root, in konsole: dhclient wlan0 (use your interface)
and you could see the ip assigned from the router....
At last now you should have connection to the internet.

If be more presise. Use as root (in terminal type su and password for root):
iwlist scanning - You'll see your wi-fi interface name and all AP in range.
iwconfig ra0 (or your interface name if it different from my r0) essid any - It'll connect to any AP in range. Or essid Your_AP_Name.
exemple : iwconfig ra0 essid MyWi-Fi - it will connect to AP with name MyWi-Fi.
dhclient ra0 as gs said.

And just for test. Make AP unsecure (just free to connect, no key). I'm 90% shure it is security problem.
