    iwconfig/dhclient problems w ENUWI-2G wireless USB adapter

    So I'm using ndiswrapper to make my Encore ENUWI-2G wireless USB adapter work on my Slackware 13.0 box. I've installed the XP drivers from the CD. Everything was working fine for the last couple of days, and then I sat down at my box this morning and I had no connectivity. So I went through the steps:

    root@deanmachine10:/home/deanj20# ndiswrapper -l

    --- 192.168.1.1 ping statistics ---
    1 packets transmitted, 0 received, +1 errors, 100% packet loss, time 0ms

    No working leases in persistent database - sleeping.
    Now, on the router's DHCP Clients table, I can see that it has in fact leased an address to the computer. Can someone please explain to me WTF is going on? This is driving me crazy! I've had to do this before - it seems like sometimes it just doesn't want to work. Earlier it wouldn't even allow me to change the access point, so I reinstalled the driver. Now I'm able to set all the parameters via iwconfig, but still no dice.

    Any ideas? Thanks!

    Thumbs up

    Well, in case anyone stumbles across this post on a search, the issue was semi-resolved on a post I made on LinuxQuestions.org here: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...rapper-791982/

    Good luck, and let me know if I can help anyone resolve this issue...
