    Hi, MeThinks I was confused by our Eee's which show ath0 as the interface.

    I have re-run the instructions several times and now have the message:
    No DHCPOFFERS received.
    No working leases in persitent database - sleeping.

    kinrose

    Best advice

    Figure out the interface
    Try an unencrypted connection
    Use an ESSID with only letters or numbers -- no spaces or crazy characters.
    Broadcast the Essid

    Make sure you can see your router with
    iwlist scan

    Hmm. maybe you could provide more info.

    I put "sleep 20" in, and still nothing.

    I tried it again manually (deleted the commands out of rc.local) and it does work that way. But when I enter the line "sudo wpa_supplicant -w -Dmadwifi -iath0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf" with and without "-dd", it either goes in a loop or just sits there without returning back to commandline. I then open up another terminal, type the rest of the commands, and voila, it connects. Could this be the problem when rc.local runs at boot?

    Can you try with a -Bw flag instead of a -w flag? B sends it into the background. Not sure if this will make a difference in your case.

    Re: How To: Manual Network Configuration without the need for Network Manager

    Does it work without the sleep statement and only the -Bw flag?

    Yes, I took out the sleep statement and used -Bw.

    Brilliant!! I love you!!
    It's so great to go back to the very basic level, that's why I love Linux when things aren't working you can start from scratch and build them up.

    Thank you!

    elegua

    What's the problem?? -- We are not using the /etc/network/interfaces file in this example. -- neither does wicd.

    Did you type any commands on the command line?
