AR9285 wifi card just connects on boot proccess
Hi everyone, i have a problem with my wireless card.
I cant get an ip by using dhclient, but this only happens when i am alredy logged in.
If i put the following in /etc/rc.local it works.
It is extrange because when i am alredy logged in, it says there were no DHCPOFFERS. But when those commands are executed on the bootprocess, dhclient gives me an ip.
iwconfig wlan0 essid "cuore"
iwconfig wlan0 key 2323232323
ifconfig wlan0 up
I can do pretty much everything when im logged in (scan networks, inject traffic, monitor mode, etc). The only thing that doesnt work when logged in, is actually making the connection.
I have even tried to put the ip manually but it also doesnt work.
The card is alredy connect because of the /etc/rc.local instructions.
