Hi all,
I installed hostap.  when I go to enable wlan0 (ifup
wlan0), it gives me this:
Error for wireless request "Set ESSID" (8B1A) :
    SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument.
then I did iwconfig wlan0 essid mnet (mnet is my
essid), and I couldn't connect to my network becuase
when I typed in dhclient, it just kept going like this
(posted at the end of this message)

Please help me to get this thing to work
