Could you post your /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-wlan0? It may help
us solve your error. But I do not think that is what is causing the problem.
What type of security is your modem/router set up to use? (WEP/WPA/none) If
you do not set up the wireless card to use the same security, and/or if you
are not using the managed mode on your wireless NIC, you are going not going
to get a DHCP lease.
This is my ifcfg-wlan0, as you asked:
# Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection
I am using Fedora 8, with XFCE, though Gnome is installed too.
My ADSL modem is Siemens SL2_141. I kept the wireless setting there
Basic --> Enable Wireless --> (checked)
SSID --> ddnet
Country --> India
Enable Wireless Guest Network --> (unchecked)
Security --> Select SSID --> (ddnet)
Network Authentication --> Open
WEP Encryption --> Disabled
In my 'system-config-network' in the laptop I have kept the settings
wlan0 --> Activate device when computer starts
Automatically obtain IP address --> DHCP
Automatically obtain DNS Information --> (checked)
Wireless Settings Mode --> Auto
Network Name --> Specified --> ddnet
Channel --> 1
Transmit rate --> Auto
Key --> (nothing)
I have tried the Network name --> (Auto) too, with the same results.
Did you try setting MODE=Managed?
Do you see your router's ssid broadcast with the following command?
# iwlist wlan0 scan
