Wireless setup
Code:
ifconfig eth1 up
iwconfig eth1 essid linksys
iwconfig eth1 key "s:xxxxxx"


Then i run dhcpcd

Code:
dhcpcd eth1


But i never get a ip address and when i look at dmesg i got that

Code:
bcm43xx: PHY connected
bcm43xx: Radio turned on
bcm43xx: Chip initialized
bcm43xx: DMA initialized
bcm43xx: 80211 cores initialized
bcm43xx: Keys cleared
SoftMAC: Open Authentication completed with 00:16:10:09:78:32
bcm43xx: set security called
bcm43xx:    .active_key = 0
bcm43xx:    .level = 1
bcm43xx:    .enabled = 1
bcm43xx:    .encrypt = 1
SoftMAC: Authentication response received from 00:16:10:09:78:32 but no queue item exists.
bcm43xx: Radio turned off
bcm43xx: DMA 0x0200 (RX) max used slots: 1/64
bcm43xx: DMA 0x0260 (TX) max used slots: 0/512
bcm43xx: DMA 0x0240 (TX) max used slots: 0/512
bcm43xx: DMA 0x0220 (TX) max used slots: 2/512
bcm43xx: DMA 0x0200 (TX) max used slots: 0/512


Any solutions?

Thanks

It appears that DHCP still isn't working for you.

bcm43xx: Radio turned off

dhcpcd brings down the interface if it can't get an address, so the result is non-working wireless. Try setting the values manually for now, we're working on the issue.

Hey!

I have tried that with the 20060104 version of the driver.

Now i will update the driver to the newest version. Maybe it will work then.

You need to use the patched version of ieee80211. There's one included with the softmac snapshots.
