April 11th, 2009, 06:50 PM
right now i'm repairing my wifi. it "broke" a while ago and i'm in the process of reconfiguring madwifi for it. I'm currently running the pclinuxos distro but i knew the ubuntuforums community would be able to help me out.
i've gotten this far: i can manually go in and connect to a network but i'll get a 0% signal. here's what iwconfig gives me:

[jordan@localhost ~]$ iwconfig ath0
ath0 IEEE 802.11g ESSID:"08FX08016825" Nickname:"localhost"
Mode:Managed Frequency:2.437 GHz Access Point: Not-Associated
Bit Rate:0 kb/s Tx-Power:16 dBm Sensitivity=1/1
Retry:off RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
Power Management:off
Link Quality=0/70 Signal level=-96 dBm Noise level=-96 dBm
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0

so i'm connected to the network "08fx08016825" but getting nothing from it. what can i do to get internet access again?
