Yes but how are you trying to connect?

Do you have a simple /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-wlan0?
Do you have onboot=yes in this file?
Then are you doing ifup wlan0 to try and connect if it is not running at
boot time?

Or do you have wpa_supplicant for an open connection? You can use
wpa_supplicant to make a simple connection with no encryption.

What is the output of ifconfig as root? What is the output of iwconfig as root once connected.

Is dhclient running after you boot up?
Do you set a fixed ip address in the ifcfg-xxx file?

I think if you send some of this information people can offer some
advice...


I totally misunderstood your question, I'm sorry about that. I connect via a simple ifcfg-xx file. I don't use NM for anything. I don't have dhclient running since I gave it a static IP. That's not ever been a problem before, it's been a static IP since I put the card in the box a half year ago.

Here's the output you asked for:

I can tell from iwconfig that it looks to be not getting a signal, but I know the signal strength has always been good at this location, and my XP boot on this system (I know, but it's only for games and testing windows apps) that signal strength is perfect on it. The AP is only about 15 ft from the system.

Does this help?
