    I think that you should have received a later reply telling about the typo
    in the address above. It should have been:

    No, I did not. Is it still relevant with -rc4 or with -rc5? I still get the
    same problem with -rc5 (but I will have to test it a bit more with -rc5).
    Just as a refresher:

    * I can set everything on the iBook with the wireless key plugged;
    * The wireless key *sees* the AP, even with encryption (that is, it grabs
    the MAC address of the AP, it (sometimes) shows me the signal strength,
    and if I issue "iwconfig wlan0 ap any", I see both the led of the
    wireless key blink and an increase of amount of data transmitted and
    received with "ifconfig wlan0");
    * With everything set this way, if I do "dhclient wlan0", it doesn't get a
    lease from the AP---actually, despite the fact that it is possible to see
    the other point, dhclient goes, after some attempts of getting a lease,
    to background, but no address is ever gotten;
    * Just to rule out possible problems with something sent to the address (which is reported as being done by dhclient), I tried to
    configure the address by hand via ifconfig, but, for instance, I couldn't
    ping my AP (which I can from other computers with a rt61pci driver and a
    PCMCIA connection);
    * As I mentioned above, I have no problems with the rt61pci driver, but the
    USB one doesn't seem to work (unfortunately, the iBook does not have a
    PCMCIA slot). With a notebook with an on-board Intel wireless card, I
    *also* don't have any problems.

    Well, thanks, for the help so far. I hope that we can solve this issue
    quite soon, as I need this iBook for work.

    I am willing to help as much as I can and test anything (even something
    that might be "experimental"). I think that this is as good a tester that
    you can get, right? :-)

    Thanks, Rogério Brito.
