My prism2 USB wireless device works with my HD install of DSL as long as I use DHCP. It took me a good while to realize why wireless was still using DHCP even when I turned DHCP off everywhere else- it is the last line of prism2.sh- the pump command.
So when I remove pump and add commands to bootlocal.sh to bring up a static address, I can ping myself but not the gateway or anybody else. Also when I run "route" it takes a really long time to return, but when it returns it shows me my correct default route in addition to a 192.168.0.1 route.
In bootlocal.sh, I do:
|Code Sample |
ifconfig wlan0 192.168.1.100 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.1.255
route add default gw 192.168.1.1
I've tried changing the order of the commands, and using variations, but no dice. Yes, my addresses are correct and no, nobody has .100 on my network. Also, my resolv.conf is set up correctly.
I've done my homework on this one but seem to be hitting a brick wall. Is there some sort of issue with prism2, static IPs, and DSL? For my purpose it is mandatory I have a static IP, and my router can't do static assignments based on mac addresses.
sadly, I'm still using DSL .8 . If possible, please refrain from suggesting an upgrade to fix this- given the nature of what i am doing that is not easily done.
thank you in advance
