My mom just got a new computer and was going to throw her old one away since it's so old she won't get anything for it. So, I felt like giving myself a little project, and decided to make a server out of the old box. The installation went well except for one part; the part where it configured the network. I connected a USB wireless adapter, and told it to install without network configuration. Figured I could just configure it later. Guess I was wrong.
I did everything I thought I should do:
sudo ifconfig wlan0 up sudo iwconfig wlan0 essid NETWORK-NAME key s:NETWORK-KEY sudo dhclient wlan0
Everything worked until I did the
dhclient. It just hangs there until until I manually stop it.
What can/should I do?
