I've got the following outputs and I cannot make anything out of it...

lo        Link encap:Local Loopback 
          inet addr:127.0.0.1  Mask:255.0.0.0
          UP LOOPBACK RUNNING  MTU:16436  Metric:1

# Generated by dhcpcd
# /etc/resolv.conf.head can replace this line
# /etc/resolv.cof.tail can replace this line

Should I try the iwlist scan command and the dhcpcd with ssid commands mentioned in the howto? maybe these will work now since I can connect now..

No good. I've emailed the gui support to let them know about this no IP problem. Let's see what they say about it. Thanks for your help, and please let me know if you come up with anything else.

you have 3 different network cards there eth0, eth1 and wlan0.
we need to know which is which.
run "dmesg|grep eth" and "dmesg|grep wlan"
once you find the right one you should be able to bring it up with "ifconfig eth1 up" and then "dhcpcd eth1"
change eth1 to the correct nic.

I have found out eth1 to be the correct nic. and then did this -

banglalion:/~
root:# ifconfig eth1 up
banglalion:/~
root:# dhcpcd eth1
dhcpcd[3265]: version 5.2.12 starting
dhcpcd[3265]: eth1: broadcasting for a lease
dhcpcd[3265]: timed out

So it times out... is there something wrong with my dns server configuration and that's why I am unable to lease an IP.. maybe it's requesting a wrong dns server or something?
