Hi guys,

I am fighting with mandrake 10.1 and D-Link DWL-650+ on Toshiba laptop. I exactly followed the instructions on the project's site - it compiled and installed successfully. But it doesn't work - no ping - it says "destination host unreachable" - looks like there is a routing problem or what? No firewall is installed.

I assigned IP. but can not ping to my router. Any ideas what I dod wrong? When I look at mandrake's Control Center's Monitor Connections section it says "not connected".

Any help is appreciated.


Here are my settings:

ifconfig wlan0

wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:80:C8:16:DC:A5
inet addr: Bcast: Mask:

iwconfig wlan0

cat /etc/sysconfig/network


Ping to local host is OK.

iwlist scan

Is your mode supposed to be managed, or open?

Also, have you tried using dhcp?

dhcpcd wlan0
dhclient wlan0
