Sorry..  8^((

Didn't mean to be rude..

What happens when I enter

dhclinet eht1 is

The laptop gives listen message

The broadcasts the dhcpdiscover message 

over and over about 10 times..

And then times out..

I am assuming that is the same thing

the GUI does on Activate??

The wireless card shows up in the network administration..

And I can check properties and activate....    Just doesn't work

I need to reread a prior message and do that 

Thanks for your time..

and sorry if I sounded rude.. Not intention...

I do appreciate it when people try to help me..
