Well, I don't know if you are still waiting for my reply before you change
anything (from another of your mails I think you do). The problem of a
conversation over different continents is a possibly long delay between
replies. However I don't really know what the current state of your
problem is. I'm a bit confused from the many mails in 2 threads.
Anyway, here is my comment on your setup:
I'm not sure if there are any other wireless networks in your
neighbourhood but the networkmanager wouldn't connect to an open network
unless you tell it to do so at least once. Therefore it is unlikely that
you get your internet access from another router like I supposed
yesterday. However, Karl mentioned it already, your router probably will
not let you get to the setup page via WLAN but only via the wired
interface. Probably that is the reason why you couldn't see your router.
And like Luke Militello said, you seem to have duplicate routes via eth0
and wlan0. As long as both interfaces point to your router, you will have
problems if only one is connected. It may work sometimes but it isn't
reliable. Did you at least use different IP addresses for eth0 and wlan0?
Sorry if you sent it already and I overlooked it, but maybe you could
post the output of the command "ifconfig -a".
