In my case the lights blink together in equal time intervals. It seems that
the card is somehow connected to the router but it can't get a valid ip
address. I don't know what I am doing wrong.
Here is the output of iwconfig and ifconfig after issuing the commands:
ifconfig ath0, iwconfig ath0 channel 1, wpa_supplicant
-c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -Dmadwifi -iath0 -d
