[SOLVED] W-LAN / WPA - I can only visit router page.
« on: November 10, 2007, 07:51:01 am »

I set up my Interfaces via madwifi and wpa_supplicant.

wpa_supplicant connects as it should but then i can only ping (or call in browser) 192.168.178.1 and fritz.box which is both the router itself. So the DNS is set up correctly, else fritz.box would not work...

What could be the Problem? If i can reach the router menu, the WPA thing should work, right? I mean... the router menu stuff is encrypted in the same way, isn't it?

Thanks for your help!
