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.
iwconfig wlan0 essid "cuore"
iwconfig wlan0 key 2323232323
ifconfig wlan0 up
dhclient wlan0
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.

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.

Its just i would like to do this without having to restart my computer everytime i decide to use a new network.
