Good point. I tried that, but 192.168.1.104 and 192.168.1.150 work the same. No difference that I can tell > You can often get away with setting the IP of the router (default of > 192.168.1.1 for Linksys) as your DNS, as many Linksys routers have a built > in DNS proxy. Ah. That doesn't solve the problem, but it works and it's useful. > Are you sure you're getting a strong enough signal from the AP? I think I am. The XP box is reporting a strong signal, and it's on the self below the FBSD box. Of course, the XP box is also reporting no Internet connection, and I'm using it to reply to you, so who knows. The XP box with a Belkin NIC works pretty well. The boxes are very close, so I'm guessing that signal strength is not an issue. > Have you had > success with this WiFi card accessing other APs? I have no other APs I can try it with. The only other AP within range is none of my business. > Do you have access to a > different WiFi card you could try? No. This Linksys card was the only PCI card at the local MicroCenter that was supported by FBSD 7.2. :) Thanks for your interest in my problem. :) _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
