Hey people!
First of all I apologize for my bad english, I'm doing as well as possible but
it's not that easy for me. I hope I'm finding understanding from you.
My problem: I'm using Debian sarge on an AMD Duron 700. I have eth0 for ppp0
(a pppoe connection) and eth1 (IP 192.168.1.1) for LAN with Hub. Now, I
installed a Netgear MA311 with hostap drivers to use it as an access point. I
already installed the DHCP3 server for LAN and it's going very well, so now I
try to use it with thw wireless LAN. I installed hostap-source, hostap-utils,
wireless-utils, hostapd. When I type iwconfig the output is as shown below (I
added some more confs for details).
When I now try to connect from a Win2k I can see on the servers iptraf for
wlan0 some out- and ingoing packets. The Win2k just sends but doesn't receive
anything and the dhcpd doesn't add any lease for WLAN.
So, I hope you're able to help me, I'm helpless :(
