Hi,
I use elive installed on a Dell D410 laptop with Broadcom BCM4311 wifi card. I can see networks, but I’m unable to connect to anyone because dhclient is unable to obtain an IP address.
I tried other wifi cards (Realtek, D-Link), and it is always same problem. All these cards are supported by Debian Lenny or Ubuntu 8.04.
I really like elive and wouldn’t go back to Lenny because of this wifi problem.

Thanks for help.
G. Hatt

if U see the network, problem won't be in the card.. driver seems to be OK. I have D620, all works.. SO what kind of certification do U use? Free, WPA, WPE ?
