i have just installed ubuntu 9.04 on my samsung q35 laptop, and i used
the netowkr manager to connect to my ap using wpa personal.

it does connect, but the ip issued is not correct. my ap is configured
to issue ip from 192.168.x.x but i got ip of 10.x.x.x

what's wrong here?

fs at ydag:~$ iwconfig

another funny thing is wpa_supplicant does not read my /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf

fs at ydag:~$ ps aux | grep wpa
