I got a new router/access point and have been going nuts trying to get my laptop to connect
via wireless. I previously had static IP addresses but my wife wanted me to change to dhcp
to make things easier for her windows machines. Well, her machines are just fine. The dos I've
read said that fr KDE I should use knetworkmanager, which I'm trying to do. I finally left
my eth0 config in /etc/network/interfaces and intend for knetworkmanager to just handle
wireless. I think I'm getting close as I now get a popup window for the pass phrase but
still no connection.
Below is the syslog during one try to connect. Can someone tell me what this means?
