 I have a recent ..12weeks old snapshot.
 for wireless I use an ath5k type of controller.
 /boot/common/settings/network/wireless_networks is set up correctly
  When I go to the network preferences menu
 atheroswifi is disabled after every boot up. I must enable it.
 When I enable it,by selecting DHCP and look at system log, DHCP_Discover
 get all the correct values for resolv.conf (nameserver), gateway and the
 After DHCP_DICOVER a DHCP_REQUEST is sent to the "your_address" this also
 gets the correct values but does not get a value for the "your_address"
 This may be alright???, but when I execute an ifconfig the device net
 address "your_address" is missing.
 The net does not work. The DNS (nameserver) address cannot be pinged.
 Any ideas?

 Note: without /boot/common/settings/network/wireless_network and using
 ifconfig <device> join net name password, will nor work either. Using it
 often complian that atheroewifi is nut a wlan. Doing an ifconfig <device>
 up followed by the ifconfig <device> join net name password, will get
 accepted, but as I wrote without the correct DHCP address.
 The scan operation always works and my network name displayed.
