Hello Forum,

today I decided to give OpenZaurus 3.5.3 a try and installed it on my SL-6000.

Going to the "Settings"-Tab and starting the "Network"-Application I configured my connection to the WLAN-Access-Point by configuring a static IP.

When I then start the built in wireless lan I get an error message stating "Starting interface failed" while the WLAN-LED is light up green - and can ping inside my local network.

When I the quit the "Network"-Application and enter it again and want to configure my WLAN again by clicking "Configure", I get a totally different Menu compared to the first configuration. Now there I can chose the mode of operation (Infrastructure, Auto, Managed and Ad-Hoc), type in the Session-ID, specify an Access-Point (AP) and the Channel as well as the WEP-Encryption - which I did according to the values of my AP.

When I now start up the Konqueror-Web-Browser, configure the Proxy needed at my University and type in an URL, I either get a "Timeout on server" or "Unknow host <URL>".

And when I use my CF-LAN-Card, no networking at all!

Did somebody encounter something similar like this, too? If yes or no, how can I help out with some more information (but I didn't do more than I described), i.e. where can I find some log-files where I could dig in for more information?

Thanks in advance
