Default /etc/init.d/net.ra0 is not bringing up the interface?

That was just it! Thank you so much.

Look at /etc/conf.d/wireless.example to see how you are meant to configure

/etc/conf.d/net to manage your wireless card either using iwconfig, or using

wpa_supplicant. *You probably need something like:



sleep_scan_ra0="3" #where "3" is three seconds



HTH.

Well it was working, then I wanted to add this to my /etc/conf.d/net:
essid_ra0=( "my essid" )
Now the same problem is happening again, any advice?

Nothing else in my /etc/conf.d/net except for this:
sleep_scan_ra0="5"config_ra0=( "dhcp" )
