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.
