Problem with bcm43xx-80211 Revisited Again



Sorry I dropped off the thread, but Time Warner lost my Internet connection for the better part of the week. I appreciate everyone's eyes and help so far.

To summarize, I upgraded my kernel to 2.6.22.2-42.fc6 and then had to upgrade to bcm43xx-80211 and version 4 of the drivers for my wireless. Now after booting up, the radio is configured (iwconfig) and the adapter is configured (ifconfig), but I cannot connect to the Internet. If I run 'ifup eth1', my network then works. It is as if 'ifconfig' was run before 'iwconfig' during the bootup process.

While my Internet connection was out, I created a work-around. I created an init.d script that runs 'ifup' and set it to run just before the netfs script. I added 'ifconfig', 'iwconfig', 'iwlist' and 'ping' commands before and after the 'ifup' to try to capture the state of the interface before and after the 'ifup'. The results are listed below. I don't see anything in there to indicate the problem. If any of you guys do, please let me know.

Thanks!

Andrew Robinson
