I have a Belkin Wireless PCI Card (Broadcom BCM4306/R3).
I have installed the firmware and dmesg | grep firmware shows no issues loading the firmware (which I installed following the instructions on this site).
The Card finds the network and connects to it (it gets an IP address and eerything, see below).
wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:11:50:3D:04:2B inet addr:192.168.2.7 Bcast:192.168.2.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 inet6 addr: fe80::211:50ff:fe3d:42b/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:48 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:14718 (14.3 Kb)
BUT I cannot access the internet.
I have tried pinging my router and I get the following :
francisco@linux-wiwl:~> ping -c 5 192.168.2.1 PING 192.168.2.1 (192.168.2.1) 56(84) bytes of data. --- 192.168.2.1 ping statistics --- 5 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss, time 4011ms
I know the address for the router is correct as I can ping it when I use my ethernet cable.
I have done a fair bit of searching, but just cant nail the problem. I assume it lies with the way my card tries to communicate with the router, but appart from that I have no idea as to what is going on.
Also, sudo /usr/sbin/iwlist scan yields:
lo Interface doesn't support scanning. eth0 Interface doesn't support scanning. wmaster0 Interface doesn't support scanning. wlan0 Scan completed : Cell 01 - Address: 00:17:3F:7C:0C:6E ESSID:"Belkin_G_Plus_MIMO_7C0C6E" Mode:Master Channel:1 Frequency:2.412 GHz (Channel 1) Quality=80/100 Signal level:-47 dBm Noise level=-61 dBm Encryption key:off Bit Rates:1 Mb/s; 2 Mb/s; 5.5 Mb/s; 11 Mb/s; 6 Mb/s 9 Mb/s; 12 Mb/s; 18 Mb/s; 24 Mb/s; 36 Mb/s 48 Mb/s; 54 Mb/s Extra:tsf=00000011bcbc6ebc Extra: Last beacon: 706ms ago pan0 Interface doesn't support scanning.
and /usr/sbin/iwconfig yields:

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
