Installed VL64 7.2 B1.1 without issue...need kernel sources for 4.4.39. There is an update to 4.4.41 that has the kernel sources but got this:

ERROR: Package is corrupt: /home/ftp/pub/veclinux/packages/./kernel4.4-4.4.41-x86_64-1vl72.txz

Had similar issues with a few packages: wxGTK - md5sum mismatch and wxPython - package is corrupt.

Try dhcpcd -k
dhcpcd

See if that works.

dhclient is not a command in Vector or Slackware.

You will need wpa_supplicant to finish the connection.

This site should get you going.

I do not know why the gui tools are having a problem.
This has been forwarded to the devs.

After transposing essid and wlan0, which didn't work so I tried the way you said.  The only difference:
iwconfig
wlan0 IEEE 802.11bg ESSID:"qwest5177"
Still no connection.  And somewhere it is supposed to ask for the pass phrase.

I screwed that up:

iwconfig wlan0 essid "AP Name"

Follow the notes.

See if that gets it going.

Thanks for your reply, Bigpaws.
I moved the device to another port and see that I made a couple of mistakes - couldn't read my own writing!
