    rtl8180 wifi crashes dhclient

    i have just installed fluxbuntu, and have been trying to set up wifi for the past few days, the rtl8180 driver seems to work as i can discover my essid through the gui, however when i connect to it after entering my key it crashes, my conclusion is that it crashes on dhclient, after the socket/fallback line. if someone could tell me where to look to fix this, it would be much appriciated.

    i'm not too good at linux.

    thanks

    I cannot believe no one else is suffering this problem, i have searched the internet to no joy. if i run dhclient without setting wlan0 essid or key dhclient works connecting eth0, but if i setup wlan0 iwconfig wlan0 essid, key when dhclient runs the computer freezes and the caps lock and shift lock indicators flash until i hold the power.

    there must be someone that knows the answer, or atleast something i can try to do to solve it.
