Switching to DHCP leaves me with a dead connection after boot (Wifi card not assoiciated with AP). Only after I disable and enable the driver with a modprobe -r and a subsequent modprobe I manage to get a connection, but only for a very short time. After that de connection is dead again.
I went back to driver 1.03 which does not give me these problems. Maybe I will give 1.04 another try tomorrow. I might also try to use the 2.3 fw with the 1.03 driver if possible to see what that gives (I already verified the fw 2.2 / driver 1.04 combination does not work).
Anyway, I really would like to have static IP functioning again since it's fast an reliable.
