  1. Wireless card

    Hi all, I kept trying to connect using my wireless card but so far
    still couldn't get it work.

    Here is my ifconfig -a output

    I suppose i'm using ipw2200 as my dmesg|grep ipw2200 gives

    ipw2200: Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200/2915 Network Driver, 1.1.2kmq
    ipw2200: Copyright(c) 2003-2006 Intel Corporation

    ipw2200: Detected geography ZZM (11 802.11bg channels, 0 802.11a channels)

    Please let me know if you need more info, the problem seems like I
    couldn't get the ip address for eth2. Anyway, I look forward to your
    help as I've been googling around for quite a while. Thanks a lot!

    Are the wifi settings correct ?
    Usually if the Access Point requires the WEP key, the security settings
    is set to 'Restricted' and not 'Open'

    If you got X running I suggest you install wifi-radar
    It saves a lot a headaches (and hair) in configuring wifi networks.

    Just apt-get install wifi-radar, and tried my network, with key being
    my key, mode Managed, Channel auto, Security restricted, and ip
    automatically done by dhcp. However, it just took forever to stop,
    and I suspect it's the same situation as I use dhcpcd -d eth2 which
    gives mac address without giving ip address. Any idea how to fix it?

    dumb question but is there an active DHCP server assigning IPs in wifi
    network ? An access point does not necessarily have to be a dhcp server
    unless it configured to be one.

    One more point, Essid is case sensitive.

    Ace.

    How could I check that?

    Well before I used iwconfig to do it myself but now I use wifi-radar
    so probably it should not be the problem.

    Thanks!

    If the AP happen to have Ethernet ports as well (some do), connect to
    one of those and see if you get an IP.

    Also it would help to get info about this wifi network from it's providers.

    Today I found a network without encryption to try, I can get ip
    address, but cannot use it as to both ssh and iceweasel do not work.
    Any input is welcome. I'm totally clueless and don't know what to do
    now... thanks a lot!

    This is a slightly ambiguous description

    Maybe routing is not working ?
    When attached to a testing (w)lan with an IP from a
    dhcp server, post the output of these commands:

    /sbin/ifconfig
    /sbin/route
    cat /etc/nsswitch.conf
    cat /etc/resolv.conf
