Does anyone know the correct parameters to insert in the kernel source code .config file to setup a USB WiFi managed mode DHCP aquired IP address under kernel 2.4.20 OS's ? Do we need to play around with 'Network Setup' and 'Network Options' in the kernel config file ?

I just recompiled the PdaXii13 kernel to get Dhclient running. I had to enable:

CONFIG_PACKET=y

and

CONFIG_FILTER=y


in the Kernel config file to get Dhclient to actually run, now, it runs, but it is still unable to aquire the IP Address using USB WiFi and DHCP from an Access Point
I also notice, that while we are able to load up the parameters of our Network using the iwconfig command, the function:

iwconfig rausb0 ap 00:11:22:33:44:55

does not work, this is important as the system needs to either be able to fetch the AP's MAC address or it needs to be told it. with USB Wifi, neither of these
happen.

I report the same problems with the program :

dhcpcd

Also, it would be great if we could get Ad-Hoc mode to properly operate in the CF 802.11b WiFi cards, this mode would also be good to add for the USB WiFi cards too.

any suggestions ?

Maybe I should just leave it all rot and wait for kernel 2.6 pdaX ?

Have you looked at the IP numbers in /etc/resolve.conf and /etc/resolv.prev?

I am not sure if this is relevant to your problem, but it might be. The DNS numbers need to be good ones to get online.
