diggler Posted January 16, 2012 Share Posted January 16, 2012 (edited) When manually connecting to an OPEN WiFi network using BT5R1 "dhclient wlan0" (as seen in Telot's script) (without using "NetworkManager Applet 0.8" or "Wicd Network Manager") for wlan0 I get an error. 1) Any ideas? I've searched all over and found different variations of what I'll post below but they all give me the same error: OPEN WiFi AP Cell 02 - Address: 00:10:D0:00:75:00 Channel:11 Frequency:2.462 GHz (Channel 11) Quality=44/70 Signal level=-66 dBm Encryption key:off ESSID:"TEST" Bit Rates:1 Mb/s; 2 Mb/s; 5.5 Mb/s; 11 Mb/s; 6 Mb/s 9 Mb/s; 12 Mb/s; 18 Mb/s Bit Rates:24 Mb/s; 36 Mb/s; 48 Mb/s; 54 Mb/s Mode:Master Extra:tsf=000002a969051235 Extra: Last beacon: 90ms ago IE: Unknown: 000D574E315F4248355F534F555448 IE: Unknown: 010882848B960C121824 IE: Unknown: 03010B IE: Unknown: 0706555320010B1B IE: Unknown: 200100 IE: Unknown: 2A0100 IE: Unknown: 32043048606C IE: Unknown: DD0900037F01010000FF7F Configuring Wifi through wlan0 interface for netbook internet access root@bt:~/Desktop# ./wlan0.sh ifconfig wlan0 down ifconfig wlan0 up iwconfig wlan0 essid "TEST" iwconfig wlan0 channel 11 iwconfig wlan0 mode managed dhclient wlan0 ERROR Internet Systems Consortium DHCP Client V3.1.3 Copyright 2004-2009 Internet Systems Consortium.

No working leases in persistent database - sleeping. My guess is that is has something to do with "DHCPDISCOVER" looking for "255.255.255.255" and not "255.255.254.0", or the error "mon0: unknown hardware address type 803" What it looks like if I connect successfully with NetworkManager Applet 0.8 with only one wifi adapter connected wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:11:d1:18:b1:11 inet addr:192.168.20.93 Bcast:192.168.21.255 Mask:255.255.254.0 inet6 addr: fe80::225:d3ff:fe88:c818/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:108579 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:22183 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:54172944 (54.1 MB) TX bytes:2352640 (2.3 MB) 2) Is there a way to flush and restore "NetworkManager Applet 0.8" and "Wicd Network Manager" to default settings? I'm getting all sorts of "can't obtain IP address" errors. service network-manager stop /etc/init.d/wicd stop My hardware setup is: Laptop - Teo Pro Netbook (http://zareason.com/...ro-Netbook.html) Laptop built in wireless adapter - wlan0 ath9k[mac80211]-N/A Atheros Communicaitons Inc.

RTL8187 3) Could there be a conflict between the two WiFi NIC's because they're both trying to use the "mac80211" stack at the same time?
