Could you post your /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-wlan0? It may help
us solve your error. But I do not think that is what is causing the problem.
What type of security is your modem/router set up to use? (WEP/WPA/none) If
you do not set up the wireless card to use the same security, and/or if you
are not using the managed mode on your wireless NIC, you are going not going
to get a DHCP lease.


Dear Ellertson

This is my ifcfg-wlan0, as you asked:

<<
# Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection
DEVICE=wlan0
BOOTPROTO=dhcp
HWADDR=00:1C:BF:D6:3B:34
ONBOOT=yes
NETMASK=
DHCP_HOSTNAME=
IPADDR=
DOMAIN=
TYPE=Wireless
ESSID=ddnet
CHANNEL=3
You should not need a channel number.
MODE=Auto
Mode should be Managed to connect to an access point.
RATE=auto
SEARCH=
You should not need search at all.
DNS2=192.168.1.1
DNS3=192.168.1.1
DNS1=192.168.1.1
If you are going to use peerdns, you do not need to specify the DNS servers. You should only need one anyway.
USERCTL=no
PEERDNS=yes
IPV6INIT=no
NM_CONTROLLED=no


I am using Fedora 8, with XFCE, though Gnome is installed too.

Because you are not using Network Manager to control the interface, it does not matter what desktop you are using.

My ADSL modem is Siemens SL2_141. I kept the wireless setting there
like:

Basic --> Enable Wireless --> (checked)
SSID --> ddnet
Country --> India
Enable Wireless Guest Network --> (unchecked)

Security --> Select SSID --> (ddnet)
Network Authentication --> Open
WEP Encryption --> Disabled

In my 'system-config-network' in the laptop I have kept the settings
like this:

wlan0 --> Activate device when computer starts
Automatically obtain IP address --> DHCP
Automatically obtain DNS Information --> (checked)

Wireless Settings Mode --> Auto
Network Name --> Specified --> ddnet
Channel --> 1
Transmit rate --> Auto
Key --> (nothing)

I have tried the Network name --> (Auto) too, with the same results.

With the minor changes I pointed to above, it should work. The only thing that may have to change is to tell the 3945 driver that it should use the India wireless frequency map instead of the U.S.A. map that I believe it uses by default. But I don't know how to do that off hand. Hopefully, someone that does will jump in here. If not, I will see what I can find when I have time.
