wpa_authentication but dhcp timeout
Sat Jan 6 03:46:43 PST 2007
I had a similar problem with my setup (Gentoo, wpa_supplicant, hostap & dhcpcd) recently that I've been working on with the dhcpcd developer. I posted to this list about a week ago to share my experience in hopes that I could get some help on this side. However, you're running dhcpcd v2.0.5; that version worked okay for me, however, v3.0.8 fails to work for me. I'm curious if a different dhcp client would work for you or a different version of dhcpcd as it did for me.

Subject: wpa_authentication but dhcp timeout
I am trying to connect to a Linksys WCG200v2-CC modem/wired
router/wireless router using wpa_supplicant. I can connect (without
wpa_supplicant) using an ethernet cable to this router, and I can
connect with my wpa_supplicant setup to at least one wpa-enabled ap.
What's more, according to wpa_cli wpa_supplicant is connected, but
dhcpcd times out waiting for a valid dhcp response from the router.
Two other people (using windows xp) are able to connect to the
wireless router. So wpa_supplicant in general seems to work with wpa
at least, the router works with other authentication systems, and the
router works with an ethernet connection, but the combination
wpa_supplicant and the wireless router does not work.
utils version: 1.9
driver version: 1.25
# WEP- at home

DHCP server response
Jan 5 18:44:44 localhost wpa_cli: executing '/etc/init.d/net.wlan0
--quiet start' failed
So far I've called the ISP, Comcast, a couple of times, but they 'do
not support linux' and are in general unwilling to help. I share the
connection so I can't change the router/ISP.
I've searched quiet a lot of forums etc for combinations of
wpa_supplicant, dhcp, wcg200, but struck out.
I don't know what the problem might be, or how to proceed in trying to
find out what it might be, so I'm grateful for any suggestions and
