Try to remove the device and create a new one.
Comment 4 Ivan Gyurdiev 2005-09-12 03:48:33 EDT
Allright, so here's what happened.

1) Device was renamed from ath0:1 to ath0

2) My info was remembered.

3) My WEP key was remembered, but was placed without the 0x, and with dashes
between every 4 digits. This results in an error, and the card won't activate
until fixed (BUG)

4) My channel was fixed to 1, and transmit rate to 5Mb (not 5M). Those were
grayed out in Managed mode, and I couldn't change them. Perhaps this is supposed
to be so, but this resulted in an error (Error for wireless request: "Set Bit
Rate") (BUG). I set mode to Auto, then set channel to 11, transmit rate to Auto,
and reset mode back to Managed (mode of Auto doesn't work - see other bug).

6) I am now able to do the DHCP thing... excellent.
